Wickstrom House today (2014), photo by Deb Ross
In the early 1920s, Olof Anderson, one of the brothers who owned Tumwater Lumber Mills, platted this part of Olympia out of the original plat created by Kate Stevens Bates from the Cloverfields Farm property. Several homes in this area, including this one, as well as the Watkins House next door, are Tumwater Lumber Mills pre-cut homes. It is in their popular English Revival style, built around 1926. For more information on the Tumwater Lumber Mills, see the Harmon House listing.
Victor Wickstrom was a superintendent at Tumwater Lumber Mills.
The home is on the local register.
