Capital City Modern
Docomomo WEWA and the City of Olympia Historic Preservation Program present a tour of Olympia's mid-century Modern architecture on Saturday, October 7, 2017, to celebrate Docomomo US Tour Day.

Tour Day is Docomomo USs annual national event that raises awareness of and appreciation for Modern design in the mid-20th century. All across the country, our friends and colleagues are producing great regional events on the same day!

As Washington's capital, Olympia is best known as the seat of state government, anchored by the beautiful capitol campus and the 1928 Legislative Building with its impressive dome. Our tour will focus on the Olympia's more recent architectural past.

On Tour Day, you'll:

-Discover Olympia's mid-century Modern architectural gems
-Learn about local history and architecture
-Tour six properties including the former City Hall, former Georgia-Pacific Plywood Headquarters, KGY radio station, and three private residences never before open to the public
