Many of the city's professional families lived in this area often referred to as "the college houses." The large David Ramsay house on the right was designed by the noted Canadian architect Samuel Maclure (1860-1929) in 1903. The house was constructed between 1903 - 1905 and was often called "the finest home in the city" The Ellensburg Capital October 24, 1904.Asahel Curtis photograph number #23669.
