The Historic Olympus Hotel

Olympus Hotel

In the foreground is the Hotel Olympus which was originally constructed in 1909. A free TV in every room was advertised and food and entertainment available in the coffee shop and the Mirror Room. The hotel was flanked by Dammeier Printing (Print NW) and the Tacoma Beauty Supply. Robblee’s Safe & Lock Co. was next to the beauty supply store. Further down Pacific was Ghilarducci’s Florists, the Trailways Bus Station and at the end of the street, the old Northern Pacific Headquarters building.

The Orchard Project

The Orchard Project includes five single-family homes in Roy, Washington, for those with low income. Developed in 2006, The Orchard Project boasts five passive solar and energy-efficient homes in a rural setting of gardens and an 8-acre apple orchard overseen by a KWA caretaker. The homes have three bedrooms, 2 baths, fireplace, covered front and back porches, fenced yard, and access to community gardens.
