Welcome to the Tacoma Historic Property Database!
This database is designed to
be a tool for property owners, investors, researchers and City employees to
access the City’s historic properties inventory.
Most of the properties on
this database are not listed on any register, but many are eligible. These
properties have been identified by the City during Cultural Resource Surveys
between 1978 and 2004 as potentially historically significant. For information
regarding buildings that are already registered, please visit the Historic
Preservation Resource Library at www.tacomaculture.org.
