The nine-acre Dickman Mill Park meanders the waterfront in downtown Tacoma - offering places to sit, ride a bike, or dine. The site occupies a significant place in Tacoma's history as a lumber-producing center. The Dickman Lumber Mill operated continuously from the 1890's until 1974. It was the last in a long tradition of lumber mills on Tacoma's "Old Town" waterfront to close down. Following a fire in 1979, the remnants of the mill slowly deteriorated. A few reminders of the past are still visible and these are interpreted through a series of exhibits.
