Long Description:
This Colonial Revival style home was built for George Gower, Secretary for the Board of Park Commissioners, in 1906. I have to say that Parks Department employees must have made much more money back then. :)

You'll find the home in the Stadium Neighborhood, which was a stylish residential area from the 1890's through the early 1920's. The historic district's narrative says this about the neighborhood:

The Stadium-Seminary Historic District is significant to the city of Tacoma as a sizeable, intact residential area which was the ultimate in fashion, particularly during its zenith between the turn of the century and the period of the First World War. Within its boundaries are several institutional buildings of monumental proportion as well as examples of nearly every residential style current in the Pacific Northwest between 1888 and 1930.
