Old City Hall Surges into the Future

Tacoma's Old City Hall which is to be restored by SURGEtacoma will soon be another example of the economic development impact and value of historic preservation, along with the nearby McMenamins Elks Temple.

After many years on Historic Tacoma's Watch List, many members of the community were relieved to learn that the City of Tacoma had finally managed to find a development firm to acquire and restore the historic Old City Hall. This has been profiled in a recent article by local South Sound Talk reporter and historian, Steve Dunkelberger.
