This attractive Tudor style cottage was built in 1937 for Emil and Elna Strom. Emil was a Swede-Finn, and a member of the Olympia Veneer cooperative, where he worked until his death in 1957. It is believed that this home was custom designed by a brother-in-law of the Stroms, but its style fits in well with this South Capitol neighborhood. The home is on the local register and in the South Capitol National Historic Neighborhood.
