Ahmet Rasim Paşa Yalısı was built at the end of the 19th century. Although the architect of the building is not known, the ampiric style and the era it belongs to leads to the allegation that it must be the work of Balyan family.

The yalı is named after Ahmet Rasim Paşa (1826-1897). Having lived during the regency of Sultan Abdülaziz and Sultan Abdülhamid, Ahmet Rasim Paşa served various governships such as Yanya, Tuna, Trabzon, Aydın until he was appointed as Istanbul Şehremini’s mayor, police chief in 1878. Later, he was sent to the governship of Tripoli where he served for 13 years until his death in 1897.

After it was burnt down, the yalı was rebuilt in 1898 to be sold to the Istanbul Municipality by Ahmet Rasim’s family. Following the Turkish War of Independence, it functioned as the 36th elementary school of the new Turkish Republic until 1970.
