In 1906, Louis Rudolph (1873-1926) purchased the furniture store of Owen W. Palmer in Mariposa Hall, New Monterey. Rudolph's became a well-known establishment supplying furnishings, including stoves, to residences and businesses throughout the Monterey Peninsula. With the death of Louis Rudolph, his son Raymond took over the business. Raymond Rudolph recalled accompanying his father "on a weekly horse and wagon trip over Carmel Hill to deliver furniture." (Monterey Peninsula Herald, July 17, 1982.)
