Overhulse House today (2010), photo by Deb Ross

Built on a fine location overlooking Olympia, the Overhulse House just across the Fourth Avenue bridge in West Olympia was in the second wave of construction on the Woodruff Subdivision in the late 1890s or early 1900s (dates vary in the records). It is a Victorian design, which might have been considered old fashioned when the house was built. It includes charming details such as sunburst brackets at the eaves, and decorative shingling. John Overhulse was a plasterer by trade, and his daughter Olive was a schoolteacher in the Olympia schools.

The home is on the local heritage register.
