Erected between 1930 and 1935, La Villa-Meeker House is one of the most unusual and elaborate homes in Olympia. It is on the local register. Its designer and owner, Ernest Meeker (see also Meeker House), was a builder, and the house reflects his personality, with many unusual features, including its construction out of different kinds of stones, even including petrified wood. It is situated on a very large landscaped lot overlooking Capitol Lake. The home is on the local register and has maintained virtually all of its original features.

Many thanks to owner Angela Bowen for access to the home and additional information about it.
