Carlson House today (2014), photo by Deb Ross
The Carlson House was built around 1937 by Henry and Edna Carlson. Carlson worked at Olympia Veneer, as did many others in this neighborhood. The house is next door to the Agnew Duplex and the Agnews later owned this home. The home is in the Tudor style, which was popular at the time, and made use of plywood, reflecting the increasing importance and availability of this as building material in Olympia, particularly for those who worked in the plywood industry. The home is well preserved and on the local register, as well as the Olympia Avenue Historic District.
