One of the largest and most imposing of the beautiful homes on Olympia Avenue, the Rudkin House was built in 1905 for Chief Justice Frank Rudkin. Several members of the bench and bar chose to build on this street, although it was distant from the courthouse across the Swantown bridge from downtown. This house was built in the Queen Anne style.
