Members of Tacoma Historical Society and its museum forge connections between past and present by collecting, documenting and sharing the unique history of our city. Its focus is on history and artifacts related to Tacoma’s past from the period immediately preceding the location of the Delin Mill on Tacoma’s waterfront in 1852 up to the significant events of the present day. Tacoma Historical Society is a volunteer-driven 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit corporation.


The Society's museum will be featuring an exhibit that examines the history of the Tacoma School District, its many historic buildings, and the events and people that shaped the development of the school system in Tacoma.
