20 Students Research Historic South and East Tacoma for Livable City Year Project
The City of Tacoma’s Historic Preservation Office is partnering with the University of Washington on a Livable City Year project to identify historic resources in South and East Tacoma.
For this project, graduate and undergraduate students are researching the histories of two neighborhoods: McKinley Hill in East Tacoma, and the Edison Neighborhood along South Tacoma Way. Students will identify and research historic buildings, sites, and context in these two neighborhoods. As a culmination of their research, they will make recommendations about the potential for National Register Historic District or individual landmark nominations.
