In the early 1930s, the ornate Olympia National Bank building just to the west of here became a branch of the First National Bank of Seattle. This annex was built three years later, in 1936. It is a Joseph Wohleb design and, while not as ornate as its neighbor, retains some of its neoclassical features. The building is in Olympia’s Downtown National Historic District, where it is listed as Historic Contributing.
