The beautiful Mary Olson Farm is located on Green River Road and is operated as a partnership between the White River Valley Museum and the City of Auburn. It is said to be King County's best preserved subsistence farm and has been fully restored.

Alford Olson, a Swedish immigrant, purchased the property in 1879. It had been a logging mill. Four years later, he and Mary wed, and they had two children, Anna and Alfred. Sadly, Alford died prematurely in 1887, leaving the farm and its operation to Mary. Mary’s brother John Anderson moved in to assist on the farm and Mary remarried Eric Magnus Johnson in 1895, but she always kept possession of the farm, and later passed it on to Anna and Alfred when she passed away in 1938. Anna and Alfred lived out their entire lives on the farm until Anna’s death in 1971.
