Everett’s Historic Rucker Mansion

posted in: Arts and Culture | 0

Hidden deep on the outskirts of Everett, overlooking the Port Gardner Bay, lies the Rucker Hill historic district, while filled with beautiful homes, this neighborhood holds Everett’s crown jewel, the Rucker house, better known as Rucker Mansion.

Built in 1905 the Rucker Mansion was first home to Jane Morris Rucker her two sons and one daughter in law. The Rucker’s were most noted for establishing the Everett Land Company which transformed the city of Everett into what the city has become today. The home is currently privately owned, and became part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.

Aside from the beautiful sight of Rucker Mansion, along the lengthy winding road that leads there,  a surprise awaits in the form of Rucker Hill Park, I would strongly encourage anyone who loves to watch sunrises or sunsets to check out the beautiful view.
