The National Trust for Historic Preservation launched Historic Preservation Month across the country in 1973 to encourage the preservation of and community pride in local heritage sites.

This May, the City of Tacoma’s Historic Preservation Office is partnering with local organizations and businesses to create a month-long calendar of events in honor of Historic Preservation Month. The 2018 theme is Adaptive Reuse. Each event aims to highlight different parts of the city’s heritage and historic resources.
