Biographical/Historical note

The A.A. Rounds house was constructed circa 1925, and remains mostly unaltered today. Adolphus A. Rounds (1872-1947) came to Pullman with his new wife, Pearl, circa 1910-1911, and set up practice as a dentist. He was very active in the community, serving as a City Councilman and head of the Chamber of Commerce. The house is located at the northwest corner of Monroe and Garfield Streets, on Pullman's College Hill. The property blueprints and drawings were created by Stanley Smith and Fred G. Rounds (no known relation to A.A. Rounds). Smith was Washington State College's campus architect in the 1920s and 1930s, and is responsible for most of the significant campus buildings built during that era; the independent firm of Smith and Rounds designed a number of Pullman-area homes and businesses as well.
