The Rudder Jessup B&B was named after General Earl Rudder.

Located just across George Bush Drive from Texas A&M University, in the Southside Historic District, this home was awarded its own historical marker.

Earl Rudder was the 16th president of Texas A&M and under his direction, admitted girls and made the corps voluntary. General Rudder and his family lived in the home after a fire destroyed the President’s home on campus. Built in 1936, the home has had 3 owners before the Jessup's purchased it. In 2000 the residence was remodeled in keeping with the home's history and with your comfort in mind.

Enjoy antiques throughout and relax in the lovingly restored home. Four luxurious guest rooms with plush king or queen-size beds with private bath can accommodate up to 11 guests. Each room is equipped with cable TV/DVD, free wireless Internet and heated floors in some of the bathrooms. Parking is not a problem even on Aggie Football game days. Relax in the garden veranda and enjoy watching the birds feeding, listen to the bubbling fountain and stroll through the organic herb garden. You may want to use the cozy business center surrounded by hundreds of antique books. Take a morning walk through the tree-shaded neighborhood and enjoy seeing the historical homes along your way.

Because of its significance the Rudder Jessup home was awarded a historical marker by the city of College Station.
