Olympia has a long and distinguished history of top-notch entertainment venues. At the iconic intersection of 4th Avenue and Washington Street we visit one of them, the State Theater, home of Harlequin Productions, and learn from Artistic Director Linda Whitney what it takes to preserve a historic building and create theater.  https://youtu.be/Dcbyl-scy-M

This video is about the history of wood products in Olympia Washington. We interview Bill Jacobs, longtime resident of Olympia, about his memories of the Port and learn about the importance of the industry to the development of Olympia and Washington State.  Includes footage of a marriage on a smoke stack.  https://youtu.be/Gf-APCj_Nf0
