Bordeaux was a community on Mima Creek and Mima Prairie southwest of Olympia in southwest Thurston County. Once a logging and sawmill town, it suffered from the depletion of local timber resources. It was named for Thomas and Joseph Bordeaux, who developed the Mumby Lumber & Shingle Company and the Mason County Logging Company around 1900. A post office was established in 1903 and was closed on February of 1942.
During Bordeaux's boom between World War I and 1930, Bordeaux had two hotels, school, numerous saloons, bank, and large residential area. At one time there were 400 men working for the company.
