Laberee House today (2012), photograph by Deb Ross
The Laberee House was built about 1923 by Rose Laberee, widow of Oscar Laberee, Quebec-born millionaire, who lived in Spokane. Mrs. Laberee was a member of the early settler Clark family, and after her husband’s death, came to live in Olympia with her daughter Gladys Kelly. Her cousin-in-law was the owner of Laberee’s Livery business in Olympia. The house is built in the popular Colonial Revival style with symmetrical features and columns framing a central doorway. It was occupied by several state employees and restored by the Carrell family. It is on the local register, as well as being located in the South Capitol National Historic District.
