Crosby House


Crosby House, in the Tumwater Historical District, is the former home of Nathaniel and Cordelia Crosby, early pioneers of the area.

It was built circa 1860. The Crosbys lived in this house for about 10 years before moving into nearby Olympia. Nathaniel Crosby was a sea captain, and the third in his family of this name.

All of the furnishings in the house were donated by descendants of the families of the early pioneers of this area.

Tours are available March through early November, Fridays and Sundays, from 1-4 p.m. Special tours can be arranged.

The third Sunday of each month that the house is open, you may find Living History reinactors, in period dress, involved in activities of the 1860-1870 era.

Your donation will help to conserve this community treasure for generations to come.
