After the opening of our new Allen C. Mason Exhibit and Research Center in the historic Provident Building in February 2014, Tacoma Historical Society launched our first new exhibit, "Out of the Attic," to showcase some of our favorite treasures from the collection up to that point.
Five years later, our collection has not only come to represent the rich history of Tacoma much more closely, but has also more than doubled in size. So we thought, what better way to mark five years of preserving, presenting, and promoting the history of Tacoma for our community than to bring out a new take on an old favorite?
"Out of the Attic 2" showcases recent donations to the THS collection which highlight our mission: telling the story of the City of Destiny.
