Native Americans – predominantly the Puyallup people -- have lived in this region for thousands of years, and it is their original name for the nearby mountain – Takhoma -- that gave the city its name. That mountain was renamed Mount Rainier by George Vancouver, in honor of his friend Admiral Peter Rainier. In 1864, Civil War veteran and land speculator Job Carr built a cabin near Commencement Bay; he hoped to profit from the selection of the Bay as the terminus of the Transcontinental Railroad. Developer Morton M. McCarver purchased the majority of Carr’s claim and named his project Tacoma City. Incorporated in 1884, Tacoma became known as the “City of Destiny” when the Northern Pacific Railroad chose it to be its western terminus. Today, Tacoma is a thriving cultural community set amidst a gorgeous natural landscape. An abundance of fascinating museums and historic sites beckon visitors, including the LeMay Car Museum, Washington State History Museum, Museum of Glass, Fort Nisqually Living History Museum, Children’s Museum of Tacoma, Tacoma Art Museum, Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, and the Job Carr Cabin Museum!
