Ruhstaller Building
900 J Street
Built Late 19th Century

This eclectic Queen Anne Victorian incorporates Classical Revival and Romanesque Revival elements. It is built of brick and faced with concrete, stone and tile.

The original owner Frank Ruhstaller managed the Buffalo Brewing Company and the Forum Investment Company. Today, the building is occupied by offices and retailers.

The Beaux Arts building in the background opened in 1925 as the California-Western States Life Insurance Building. At that time, it was the tallest building between San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. Today the building contains a hotel and a restaurant.
