The house at 1710 Eastside Street was built around 1895-1901 by Truman Brown. For several years, A.H. Smith lived here with his family. He later was one of the founders of the short-lived boomtown of Gate, Washington. The house has not yet been  inventoried and has undergone several changes, but the original gabling and wrap-around porch is intact. At the time it was built, this location would have been considered very remote from Olympia.
