Thomas Cole House
198 Olivier Street
Built 1856

This two-story building was constructed by Thomas Cole in 1856 for his family. It features an upper-floor balcony that must once have allowed residents to peer over the walls that form the Memory Garden behind Pacific House.

It became a boarding house, and many years later served as the headquarters for the local National Chinese Political Party in the early 1940s.
