"The House That Olives Built"


Known at "the house that olives built," Freda Ehmann, "Mother of the Ripe Olive Industry," and her son Edwin built the Colonial Revival Craftsman home in 1911 after she'd perfect a curing process for ripe olives and was able to open markets across the country.

The home features lovely wainscoting, hardwood floors, fireplaces, intricate stained glass windows, and antique furniture including a Chickering piano that came around the Horn. The home is available for weddings & other events.
