The Fulton Building is a structure in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The building was completed 1906 and was designed by noted architect Grosvenor Atterbury. Construction was funded by industrial Henry Phipps, and the name of the building is a tribute to noted inventor Robert Fulton.[1] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1] On May 26, 1943 the building hosted America's first night-court for gasoline war ration violators.[3] Since 2001, it has been the home of the city's Renaissance Hotel.
