Historic Preservation Events

HP Month

May is Historic Preservation Month!

National Historic Preservation Month was established in 1973 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, in order to promote historic preservation and community pride in local heritage sites. This May, the theme for Tacoma's Historic Preservation Month is Tacoma's Maritime History:Rails to Sails. The Historic Preservation Office and many local partners have worked together to create a month-long calendar of events that highlight the different aspects of the city's historic resources and heritage community.
