The Gust and Nanny Forsberg House is a good and well-maintained example of the English Builder style, built about 1936. Forsberg was a native of Sweden and worked at Tumwater Lumber Mills, but the local Heritage Inventory does not show this as a Tumwater Lumber Mills home. It is on the local register and in the South Capitol National Historic District.
