Built in 1905, the Goddard House is one of the older working class homes in this mixed neighborhood of West Olympia. The home is emblematic of the changes that are often wrought, as styles and needs change over the years. According to the city’s inventory, it was originally a fairly simple Victorian style house. At some point, decorative features were added, including the front porch with Craftsman-style arched entry, the bay window, and the brackets at roofline. The home appears to have been built for Lydia and David Goddard. David is listed in directories and census listings as a painter originally from England.
