National Register #06000915
Ellis-Martin House
1197 East Washington Street
Built 1908

The home was built in 1908 for John D. Ellis, a farmer, who lived there for ten years. It is most closely associated, however, with Leopold Martin, son of a long-time West Marin ranching family, who retired there in 1920. He and/or his descendents owned and lived on the property from 1920 until 1998. Descendents sold the property in 2005.

The Ellis-Martin house is the best and virtually the only example of a house designed in the Craftsman style in Petaluma by architect Brainerd Jones, although many of his homes display aspects of the Craftsman style.
