Downtown Walking Tour
Olson Medical Building

Dr. G. Wendell Olson Medical Office

(Rutabegorz Restaurant - 211 N. Pomona Avenue)

The front façade of this building-actually, an addition to the structure behind it-has been given a Spanish look and is a different style from the original buildings on the property. In the 1930s, two separate small buildings were used for doctors' offices; later the buildings were tied together with additions or alterations, and in 1972, the building was converted to its present restaurant use. This property is directly tied to the origins of the preservation movement in Fullerton. Local residents successfully preserved the building from demolition in 1974, sparking an interest to identify and preserve the city's landmark structures.
