Westmoreland Neighborhood Tour – May 18th

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Did you know Mr. H.A. Briggs came to Tacoma seeking a sister he never met? When Mr. Briggs came to Tacoma in 1919, he immediately liked Tacoma and called his wife, stating to gather with their children and belongings as they were all moving to Tacoma. Before North 30th Street was paved, before Westgate Shopping Center, before Tupperware parties, Briggs Construction Company built 90 homes in Tacoma’s North End Westmoreland neighborhood. See where the sales office is still standing, hear the story of where the horses Thunder and Lightning lived and learn about the mind-boggling 5000 people that attended the open house in 1951.
