Owning a historic home is at once a joy, a challenge, and a responsibility.

Oftentimes, armed with the right information, homeowners'  perceived challenges turn out to be less significant than they first appeared.  This page is designed to be a resource for homeowners as they make decisions about maintenance, repair, remodeling, and upgrading of their historic homes. 

Topics will be added periodically.  Please feel free to send suggestions for future topics, or submit comments on these pages, to landmarks@cityoftacoma.org
