Fisher House

This house was originally used as the vacation home of Oliver David Fisher of Fisher Flour Mills. O. W. and O. D. Fisher, on June 1, 1911, were the two founding brothers of Fisher Flouring Mills. It was one of the first Harbor Island industrial businesses. Fisher flour is the prime ingredient in the famous Fisher Scones that were presented at the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. Fisher Scones have been sold at fairs and festivals throughout the Northwest. Since 1915 they have been a highly prized treat at the Puyallup Fair. O. D. Fisher became a Seattle media mogul who owned a TV and radio broadcasting corporation. In 1926 he founded Seattle's pioneer radio stations KOMO and later KJR. Fisher Plaza in Seattle is the current location of Fisher Broadcasting Company comprised of the KOMO 4 television station and KOMO radio station. Fisher broadcasting now owns 26 radio stations and 12 TV stations and substantial real estate in the Seattle area but the flour mill was sold to Pendleton Flour Mills in Oregon.
