Stop 01: Job Carr Cabin Museum

Replica of Tacoma's First Building

Begin the walking tour at Job Carr Cabin Museum in Old Town Park (2350 North 30th Street). The museum is "bringing Tacoma's birthplace to life" through a replica of Tacoma's first permanent non-Native residence.

The museum is open 1 to 4 pm, Wed-Sat. If you are here during "Open" hours, we hope you'll take time to visit inside the Cabin.

Entering the Cabin, you'll step back in time to see the living space much as it would have been in the late 19th-century. Learn about Job and his family, and others who soon joined them to make Tacoma a bustling frontier town.

What do you think?

Can you imagine being a pioneer? How would your life be different if you lived in a log cabin 150 years ago?
