This imposing Foursquare style home is unusual for its size in its Eastside neighborhood. It was built in about 1909 and was sold in 1915 to William Wesley Manier and his wife Gertrude Davis Manier. Mr. Manier was a young associate of Daniel Bigelow, who lived not far away (see Bigelow House). The Maniers were a prominent family, active in business and social affairs. Gertrude was at one time president of the Woman’s Club. By the time the Maniers moved here, the Carlyon Fill had been completed, making travel to downtown Olympia and the courts much easier.
The home is listed on the local register.
