Tacoma, a city in Washington, is rich in its culture, history, and historic architecture. From early Native American settlers to immigrants from different countries, have contributed to Tacoma’s beautiful cultural landscape. With time the form and appearance of the city have changed and today Tacoma has numerous archaeological resources of cultural, historical, and scientific importance. Additionally, Tacoma has a rich architectural legacy dating back to the 1870s that marked the growth and development of the city with the establishment of the transcontinental railroad system. This railway connection attracted many industrialists, investors, designers, and businessmen to the region. The city’s architecture showcases varied architectural styles including Beaux-arts, Art-deco, Victorian style, and Craftsman style in its industrial, commercial, residential buildings that were designed by nationally renowned architects of that era like Frederick Heath, Ambrose J. Russell, and Silas E. Nelsen.
