The Yantis house is connected with a very early Olympia-area family. George Yantis, Sr. was a prominent attorney and politician, rising to the rank of Speaker of the Washington House. He built the home during the height of the Depression and it was not completed until 1932. It is a well-maintained example of Dutch colonial style with a view over Budd Inlet. The home is still owned by the family, and is on the local register.
