LOOK­ING BACK

The Olympian - - Stay Connected -

The Cap­i­tal Sav­ings and Loan build­ing in down­town Olympia opened to fan­fare in mid-1963. The clas­sic mid-Cen­tury mod­ern build­ing in­cluded a wa­ter fea­ture, fu­tur­is­tic sweep­ing roofline, and sleek in­te­rior. The build­ing has re­cently been ac­cepted onto the Na­tional Reg­is­ter of His­toric Places and is be­ing re­stored. In this pho­to­graph taken on or near open­ing day, rows of tell­ers and of­fi­cers await cus­tomers. Pho­to­graph se­lected and cap­tioned by Deb­o­rah Ross on be­half of the Olympia His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and Bigelow House Mu­seum. For more in­for­ma­tion, see olympiahis­tory.org.
