Robert Wohleb was the son of Olympia’s premier architect, Joseph Wohleb, and designed many of the mid-Century modern buildings in Olympia following in his father’s footsteps. He designed this pretty English cottage for himself and his new wife Elizabeth Davis Wohleb: its design was included in his wedding invitation. For this reason, the home was called the Honey Moon Cottage by the family. It is located in the Stratford Place subdivision platted by Frederick Schmidt and his brother Franck during World War II. Wohleb father and son both designed several of the Stratford Place homes (see also Fox House and Frederick W. Schmidt House). This home is on the local register.
