The Bailey House, located across the street from the Olympia Timberland Library, is a charming example of a Craftsman style house located near downtown Olympia. W.N. Bailey was listed as an insurance agent in a city directory. The house is one of several modest homes built in this neighborhood around 1907, and is on the local register on account of its good state of preservation and as an example of the Craftsman style home in an area close in to the commercial core of Olympia. For many years the house was occupied by the Wisniewski family, owners of the Liberty Cafe and the Wisniewski House. It is currently (2013) operated as a bed and breakfast.
