Pinehurst Cottage is a charming example of a local craftsman’s take on the Craftsman style of architecture. It was built in 1924 by Tony Ross, a Yugoslavian immigrant who worked at the Springer Mills and Hyak Lumber Company for many years. According to the Thurston County inventory, the interior of the home features many built-in features such as cabinets, bookshelves, and pantry. The home is on a large lot still lined with the pine trees for which the cottage is named. It is on the local register.
