Welcome home to 625 Olive Street in Leavenworth, the beloved turn-of-the-century historic circa 1902 Sybil Harvey House. This is a historic home registered with the Union Park Historic District and is part of the Christmas Parade of Homes. Full of history, this two-story home is constructed of smooth brick, combines Queen Anne, Romanesque, and Classical Revival stylistic attributes, and was designed by famed Leavenworth architect William P.
