The site for this first high school in Olympia, WA, was donated by Mary McFadden Miller, widow of the territorial pioneer and wealthy capitalist, William Winlock Miller. Boosters for the City of Olympia built this high school on a prominent site at a time when they competed with Tacoma, WA, to be the location of the state capitol. Olympia erected the high school to indicate their town's cultivation and commitment to the future. (This information was sent by Charlie Kirry, President, Olympia High School Alumni Association, in an email of 08/25/2008.)

Demolished by fire in 1918. It stood on the site that became part of the State of Washington Capitol Campus.
