Tacoma, WA Tidbits

The Puyallup River enters Puget Sound after flowing off of the slopes of Mount Rainier. The tribe of Puyallup Indians had many settlements on the delta. In 1841, the inlet was named Commencement Bay by a Lt. in the US Navy named Charles Wilkes.

A man named Nicholas Delin was the first pioneer to inhabit on Commencement Bay. In 1852, Mr. Delin constructed a water-powered sawmill. Although during the Indian war of 1855 and 1856, the pioneers left and didn't return, and a small settlement was established around the sawmill. In 1864 a veteran of the Union Army named Job Carr found a small lagoon, where the bluffs dropped down to the water. He renamed the area and dreamed of establishing a settlement there.

In order to get things going, it took the arrival of a developer named Morton McCarver in 1868. Mr. McCarver purchased the majority of the claim the Mr. Carr owned. He then platted what was known then as Tacoma City. A subcontractor for the Northern Pacific railroad named Phillip Ritz recommended the name Tacoma. However, by the time McCarver got around to filing his plat Mr. Carr's son named Anthony had filed a plat for the settlement Tacoma on his own property and Mr. McCarver added the word City to the name on his plat. It was Mr. McCarver who began a campaign to draw the Northern Pacific Railroad and pioneers to Tacoma, although he wasn't the originator of the name.

Mr. McCarver was responsible for the Northern Pacific Railroad selecting Commencement Bay as the western terminus of the transcontinental line it was building between Puget Sound and Minnesota in 1873. The company built its depot on a location only two miles south of Tacoma City and named it New Tacoma.

The year 1875, brought the incorporation of Tacoma City. The community was known as Old Tacoma, in order to distinguish it from New Tacoma, although the legislation named the community the City of Tacoma. The residents of Pierce County elected to relocate the county seat to New Tacoma in 1810, which had been in Steilacoom since the county was formed in 1852. The legislature incorporated New Tacoma the following year, which left two independent but similarly named city governments in operation on Commencement Bay.

In 1883, the transcontinental railroad link arrived and the separate community of New Tacoma that had a population of 4,000 people, and Old Tacoma that had a population of 400 people, and was consolidated as Tacoma, by another act of the legislature. The future looked bright for Tacoma, with Washington being granted statehood in 1869, and the transcontinental railroad connection. The population increased to 36,006 in 1890 from 1,098 people in 1880.

Although by 1901, the waterway was lined with grain terminals and warehouses, during the panic of 1893, the boom went bust. A decision by the Supreme Court in 1904 that broke up monopolies and trusts meant the end of the lock that the Northern Pacific Railroad had on wharf space and railroad service in Tacoma. The Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific Railroad, and Great Northern Railroad all developed transcontinental connections to Commencement Bay. In 1912, with the Union Pacific railroad, the Northern Pacific decided to join its competition and built Union Station.

There was a conflicted relationship between the Northern Pacific Railroad and its subsidiary, the Tacoma Land Company and the community of Tacoma. The railroad was promoting the development on the waterfront and the future of Tacoma. However, the railroad and their officers controlled the development and land sales, especially on the waterfront.

Between the 1900's and the 1910's the community was booming. The Make Tacoma Clean campaign and the zoning codes kept the saloons out of residential neighborhoods. The community constructed with a hydroelectric system on the Nisqually River and a water system on the Green River.

With the defense buildup for WW II, things started to come around for Tacoma during 1940. Once again the Shipyards expanded. The community was crowded with soldiers and war workers, and soldiers and sailors crowded into the community. Women were taking over jobs that were only held by men at one time. In order to have somebody to work in the war factories, African Americans were recruited in the Deep South. In 1942, Japanese American residents were ordered to evacuate to the west coast by the Army. In Tacoma, the population of African Americans increased to 3,205 people by the end of the war from 650 people in 1940. Some African Americans began living in the homes of the interned Japanese American who, the majority of which didn't return to Tacoma after the war. The urban renewal project destroyed the block that were associated with the Japanese community when the war ended.

The opportunity for interurban corporation arrived with the air age. During the early 1920's, Tacoma used a racetrack to construct Mueller-Harkins Field. In 1928, Pierce County constructed an airport as a new Tacoma Municipal Airport. However, in 1938, the Army used it for McChord Field. On the condition that the name reflect both sponsors, Tacoma agreed to join Seattle in the construction of a new airport between the two communities at Bow Lake. The result was the Sea-Tac Airport that was completed in 1944.

Tacoma joined a federal pilot project for postwar urban planning during WW II. The voters approved recreational facilities, a civic auditorium, port development, street and sewer improvements, and new schools in 1944. Urban renewal transformed downtown with terraced walls and parking garages following the end of the war. However, the automobile and suburbanization placed the businesses downtown into competition with once rural communities such as Gig harbor and Fife with shopping malls. Interstate 5 and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge shifted local transportation to highways from ferries and rails.
