This building on Franklin Street is one of the oldest mortuaries in Olympia, built about 1900. At the time of the photograph at above left, taken by photographer Robert Esterly, it was managed by Hugh Sticklin. Shortly after that the business was acquired by Jesse Mills, of the pioneer Mills family. The Mills family operated the business until recently, when it has hosted religious communities and retail operations. It has an unusual elongated fourquare style.
