Old Town Homes for Sale
You can quickly recognize where the Old Town neighborhood got it’s name, when you drive down the old cobblestone streets. The area is the actual birthplace of Tacoma, where civil war veteran Job Carr settled and built a log cabin near the shore, overlooking the Puget Sound. Carr anticipated a boom in the area as the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad was taking place, and his cabin served as the first post office and place of election. Today the cabin is marked by a plaque at the base of Carr Street and a replica can be found in the Old Town Park. Today, this beautiful waterfront section of Tacoma is home to parks, shops, and other local historical sites. It features Tacoma’s oldest place of worship, St. Peter’s Church. Built in 1873, the church is one of two Old Town buildings to hold a place on the National Historic Registry and is now the oldest building in the city. Old Town’s rich and deep history are on display as visitors and residents alike can enjoy the beautiful views amongst some of the oldest architecture in the area.
