City Hall in 1966 – 1/7/18

The “O” shaped Olympia City Hall building, now the Lee Creighton Justice Center on Plum Street, was part of Olympia’s “Committee of the 60s” effort to improve the infrastructure of the city. It was touted nation-wide as a model of good design, architectural innovation and space planning. This photograph was taken in early 1966 when the building was brand-new, just before architect Robert Wohleb’s untimely death. Photograph selected and captioned by Deborah Ross on behalf of the Olympia Historical Society and Bigelow House Museum.
