Built in 1927, the Porak/Lee House is very similar to many homes built by Tumwater Lumber Mills in this South Capitol Neighborhood, although its exact model has not been located in any of TLM catalogs. It is an attractive bungalow style and is on the local register, as well as located in the South Capitol National Historic Neighborhood. Henry George Porak was an engineer for the state and the city of Olympia.
