In 1959, Olympian artist Leonard Huber, teamed up with the Chamber of Commerce to create a life-sized figurine Christmas display. With the help of the Army Corps of Engineers and Fort Lewis, the Nativity was placed on a barge in the middle of Capitol Lake. It was later shown at South Sound Mall in Lacey, where it remained as a community tradition until the early '90s. Pastor George Coley and his dad brought it to Olympia Metro Church on Puget St in 1998 for several years. In 2012, Pastor George reopened the historic scene for visitors in SW Thurston County, at the Maytown church, about 1 mile E. from exit 95 off I-5.
