Welcome to the City of Destiny

Tacoma is rich with culture, history, archaeological resources, and historic architecture. From the earliest Native American inhabitants to waves of immigrants from around the world, many peoples contributed to Tacoma's cultural landscapes and the city that we live in today. The Historic Preservation Office is dedicated to preserving that legacy.
