Mitchell House today (2010), photo by Deb Ross


This house, built by Dr. David Mitchell and his wife in about 1892, was among the first wave of fine houses built in the Woodruff subdivision when Samuel Woodruff began developing West Olympia. It is a Queen Anne style house with partial gable roof and an unusual and attractive latticework wall around porch and balcony on the ground and upper level.

The home is on the local register and is remarkably well preserved.
