Tacoma, WA Tidbits

In 1841, the inlet of Commencement Bay was discovered. In 1852, where a creek entered the head of the bay, a water powered sawmill was constructed. A small community of pioneers was established around that sawmill even though they evacuated during the Indian War that occurred from 1855 until 1856. The name of this small community was Eureka.

In order to attract the Northern Pacific Railroad and new settlers, a campaign was started by a man named McCarver. In 1873, Commencement Bay was chosen for its western terminus by this railroad. The railroad built its depot on a location two miles south of Tacoma City and called it New Tacoma. In 1887, the transcontinental link arrived and the two communities had united to become Tacoma.

In 1889, the future looked bright for Tacoma as a result of statehood and the connection of the transcontinental railway system. By 1890 the population and increased to 36,006 people from 1,098 people in 1880. The boom was over by 1892 during an economic panic although grain terminals and warehouses were lining the waterway. The lock was broken on Northern Pacific's railroad service and wharf space in Tacoma and in 1904, the monopolies and trusts were broken by a Supreme Court decision. In 1912, the Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific railway, and Great Northern Railroad all built transcontinental connections to Commencement Bay. Tacoma became much larger because these railroads.

Tacoma was booming from 1900 through 1910. New residents moved into the community as an industrial boom was brought on, which fed the area's shipyard business, as a result of WW I in 1917. On 70,000 acres that were bought by the voters in Tacoma, the US Army built Camp Lewis. The voters developed the Port of Tacoma, which started to improve the facilities and the waterways in 1918.

The price of lumber dropped dramatically and agriculture slumped after WW I. During the 1920's, the water system was improved when Tacoma constructed additional hydroelectric plants. The economy in the area was wrecked by the Great Depression of 1929. With the anticipation of WW II in 1940, things were turning around in Tacoma as the result of the defense buildup. Sailors, soldiers, and war workers crowed into Tacoma. In 1942, the Army ordered the evacuation of Japanese American immigrants from the West Coast.

There was an opportunity for interurban cooperation during the air age. In Tacoma, the Mueller/Harkins airfield was constructed during the early 1920s. In Pierce County, the Tacoma Municipal Airport was constructed in 1928, just north of Fort Lewis. However, in 1938 the Army took it over. In 1944, Sea-Tac was developed as the result of an agreement between Seattle and Tacoma to build a new airport between the two communities at Bow Lake. The only condition was that the name had to reflect both communities.

In 1951, a legislative committee for the state held hearings on vice and organized crime and the sense of tranquility vanished in Tacoma. A picture was painted of official corruption and widespread vice. Ever since 1910, Tacoma had used a commission styled government. Separate officials were elected to control public safety, public works, and utilities. This system, however, caused widespread dishonesty and ineptitude. Although there was growth and a business boom, WW II revealed that the system was obsolete. The voters approved the mayor-city manager form of government in 1952.

A postwar urban planning was enjoined by Tacoma as a federal pilot project during WW II. A civic auditorium, recreational facilities, sewer system, port development, improvements to the street and new schools, and improvements to the streets were all approved by the voters in 1944. The downtown area had terraced walls and parking garages after the war as the result of this urban renewal. However, the automobile and suburbanization put the businesses downtown into competition with shopping malls and the once rural communities such as Gig Harbor and Fife. The Tacoma Narrows Bridge was opened in 1955 and that same year Interstate 5 was established, which shifted local transportation to highways from ferries and rails in 1965.

During the 1970's, Tacoma became an important link to Asia and Alaska while the Trans-Alaska Pipeline was being constructed. The space required to build the buildings that would be shipped to the oil fields and the pipeline was provided by the tidal flats. Tacoma had the opportunity to take advantage of some new technology because the container terminals needed space to move and store the big boxes.

In 1990, in an old newspaper building, the Tacoma branch of the University of Washington was developed and later had its own campus. The Museum of Glass was opened on some industrial land next to the Thea Foss Waterway in 2002. A new art museum opened in 2003, and in 2004, a new convention center opened, both of which attracted additional visitors. The downtown area is connected to Interstate 5 is connected to downtown via a dramatic bridge that is stayed by cables.
