The Hugh Jeffers House is one of many in this neighborhood using the Tumwater Lumber Mills precut designs. It is in one of their pleasingly symmetrical Dutch Colonial styles, built in 1922. (see Harmon House entry for more on Tumwater Lumber Mills). Hugh Jeffers was the brother of photographer Joseph Jeffers (see Jeffers House, Jeffers Studio). He was in the laundry business and owned and operated Capital City Laundry. He was also an avid aviator.
