Living History Performance: Women of Destiny*

painting

1889 was quite a year for Tacoma. Washington achieved statehood. Rudyard Kipling visited the “City of Destiny” and declared it was “literally staggering under a boom of the boomiest.” And three remarkable women arrived in town: businesswoman Thea Foss, artist Abby Williams Hill and visionary philanthropist Franke Tobey Jones. Each of them left their own mark on Tacoma while giving back to the community they came to call home. Meet these three women as Karen Haas portrays them in a living history presentation “Women of Destiny.”  Please RSVP to Jana Wennstrom at 253-756-6219.

Thursday, February 27 at 11:00 am in the Lillian Pratt Parlor
