Jollie G. Bullock's home at 537 Johnson Ave. is part of the Orofino Historic District placed on the National Register of Historic Place in 1982. The one-story frame house was built in 1902 with shiplap siding, a hipped roof and Queen Anne style windows. In 1982, the owner was Ted Harroun.

Bullock was very involved in the community socially and politically, according to information from olde news articles. He was a member of the fire department, played baseball on the Orofino team was active in the county's Republican Central Committee. He must have like to dance because one article noted how he regretted wearing new shoes to a dance.

Bullock sold the home to a Mr. Wiggleworth, Jr., a sheep man in 1919. He was planning to open a grocery store in a short time in his brick building on Johnson Ave.
