Welcome

Historically speaking, we represent the communities of Browns Point,Dash Point and Northeast Tacoma which are located on the shore of Commencement Bay across from downtown Tacoma.

Our facilities including a History Center, Lighthouse Cottage rental and Museums are located on Puget Sound, in Browns Point Lighthouse Park. Some of these buildings, dating to 1903 and on the National Registry of Historic Places are open for visitors.

You can tour the restored lightkeepers cottage which is furnished with antiques and available for weekly rentals; in the History Center view changing historical exhibits; visit the Boat House Museum which displays a replica surfboat and historic maritime items; and ring the original lighthouse bell, struck in 1867, which hangs in the former Pump House.

In addition, you could bring a picnic and enjoy playing on the shores of Puget Sound, watching sailboats and freighters or simply enjoy a sunset over the Olympics Mountains in the distance.

Facilities are open Saturdays, 1 - 4 p.m. from March through November, and in addition, when the Cottage is rented, part of the renters duties as honorary lighkeepers is to have the buildings open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 1 - 4 p.m.

Otherwise contact us to make special arrangements for a visit.
