A press release from Tacoma Historical Society.
The Tacoma Historical Society Museum (406 Tacoma Avenue South) will discuss the recent Dickman Mill Park project at the August 9 (7 pm) meeting (online via Zoom), where the featured speaker will be Claire Keller-Scholz.
The Metro Parks Tacoma historian and Planning and Asset Management Administrator Keller-Scholz will be speaking on the recent Dickman Mill Park project, sharing the history of the site and the process through which the Tacoma Landmark head saw has at long last been restored to its original waterfront location.
She will discuss the significance of the head saw to lumber history in Tacoma, and walk us through the stages of park development as the mill site was transformed from burned out rubble to a welcoming natural shoreline habitat and recreation space over the past thirty years.
With thanks to Tacoma Creates for support of our public programs. The Zoom meeting will also be recorded and shared on our THS YouTube Channel.
