The Quist House was built about 1908 and is a well preserved example of the pleasant Craftsman style working person’s home that was common in Olympia around the turn of the 20th century. Owners included Will Steele and later Washington Veneer millworker Andrew Quist. Mr. Quist was born in Finland, one of the many Scandinavian workers at Washington and Olympia Veneer in early 20th century Olympia.
