Downtown Tacoma’s Post Office

Today dear husband and I toured The historical post office at 1102 A Street, Tacoma. The tour was sponsored by Historic Tacoma The property is a glorious three story plus basement building that was constructed as a federal building in 1910.The architect was James Knox Taylor. In 1992, the 2nd and 3rd floor courthouse space was vacated in 1992 when the courts moved to their current Union Station location. The tour included a jail cell, courtrooms, the Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA) space, several large wall safes and a vacant postal area. We got to hear the vision for the property including commercial;retail space, perhaps a restaurant. The 72,000-square-foot building is listed on the city, state and national registers of historic places.

Good to see you here!
