Demonstrating the breadth of his expertise from sublime to utilitarian, Olympia’s iconic architect Joseph Wohleb designed this no-nonsense building for the Meadowlark Dairy in 1943. The dairy was one of several in downtown Olympia. It supplied milk to the Olympia School District through the war years. The building now is split between a popular eatery and a state office.
