Jacob duplex, about 1959, Thurston County Assessor
Jacob duplex today (2015), photo by Deborah Ross
When it was erected in 1959, this represented an unusual design for a duplex. As can be seen in a 2002 photograph in the original DAHP inventory, the living quarters were cantilevered over the carports underneath, with living space accessed via outdoor staircases, which still remain. The carports have recently been converted to garages, mitigating the modernistic look of the building. The building also had plywood siding, making use of an important industry in mid-Century Olympia. The building is on the local inventory, but not on the register.
