On Wednesday, February 10, the Thurston County's Historic Commission placed the White-McNett Bungalow/Arts and Crafts style home from the 1920s to the historic register. The home – commonly referred to as the 'White House' – is in the City of Yelm and reflects the rural farmhouse setting of that era here in the Pacific Northwest. The Thurston County Historic Commission manages the county's historic register. The commission's goal is to preserve county properties that have archaeological, architectural, or historic importance. Visit the county's Historic Preservation Forms webpage for information on how to apply to add a site to the historic register.
