Collection Catalog Online

Search and view artifacts in the THS collection

Posted: Nov 02, 2018

Tacoma Historical Society is pleased to announce the launch of an online portal for searching our collection, providing the community with significantly greater access to a wide range of artifacts and documents from Tacoma's history. The online portal can be accessed directly via this link:

With this initial launch, several hundred records are now available. We will continue to add additional records to the online catalog in the coming months. We also invite researchers to contact us if errors or omissions are found; please direct these comments to our Curator, Brendan Balaam, at

This project was made possible by a grant from the Pierce County Landmarks and Preservation Commission, as well as the diligent work of staff and volunteers over a period of many months.

Special thanks to staff members Brendan Balaam, Claire Keller-Scholz, and Angela Caldwell for seeing the project through, and to volunteers Ben Inokuchi, Rachel Friedland, and Chuck Morrison for providing much-needed support in the accurate cataloguing and careful storage of artifacts.
