A native of Prussia, Julius H. Ruhl came to Galveston in 1872. He served as cashier and clerk for the mercantile firm of Kauffman & Runge until his death in 1882. This home, which Ruhl had constructed in 1874-75, remained in his family until 1962. The residence exhibits Italianate detailing and features a fine, two-story porch with classical colonettes, a bracketed cornice along the roof line, and a central triangular pediment.
