The Faris house was erected about 1925, probably by Tumwater Lumber Mills (TLM). TLM was founded by the Anderson Brothers, who designed ready-built homes. There are over 100 TLM homes in Olympia alone, many in the South Capitol neighborhood. This bungalow is located at the northern edge of the  Governor Stevens neighborhood, which was named after first Territorial Governor Isaac I. Stevens, the father of Kate Stevens Bates and Hazard Stevens, who carved and platted this property out of the nearby Cloverfield’s Farm. The home is on the local heritage register.
