The Olmsted Brothers’ visionary park plan led Seattle's prominent leaders and their renowned architects to design homes nestled against blossoming Volunteer Park on Seattle’s Capitol Hill.  The homes reflect the changing tastes, lifestyles, and times just before and after World War I.  Stroll Federal Avenue and learn about these stately monuments to early 20th Century prosperity.  On this tour you’ll see a variety of classic architectural styles from notable architects of the day, including Carl F. Gould, Bebb & Mendel, & Joseph S. Cote’ and Andrew Willatsen.
