From the Boulevard Inn to Rock & Roll’s Ol’ Yeller

 

Constructed is 1912 as The Boulevard Inn, this stately mansion was once the entertainment center for Seattle’s “social elite.” The owners envisioned the Boulevard as more than just an Inn; their desire was for a quietly elegant atmosphere where their clientele could dine in intimacy and dance in the ballroom and lighted terraces. Frequently visited by such personalities as Sophie Tucker, Ethel Barrymore, George Cohan and many more.

Elizabeth Ayer, a graduate of the University of Washington and the next notable owner, was Washington State’s first licensed female architect in 1930. Ayers’ work is known for her traditional and historic stylings and the work she did on the Highlands and Seattle’s Broadmoor community as well as the Albert Schafer Castle on Hood.

The Soul of a Lady, the Heart of a Rock Star.

In 1980, Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer, Ann Wilson of the band Heart, purchased the property and resided there. She then renamed the property Ol’ Yeller. More than 40-years later, this exceptional Seattle icon has a new name and a place on the real estate market.
