Gather at Northwest Motor Scooters at 10 a.m. Saturday (August 14) for what the Tacoma Historical Society is calling a “Free Walk Through History.”

The event (see flier) will feature the author of “South Tacoma” Darlyne Reiter, railroad historian and photograph Jim Fredrickson and architectural historian Gerald Eysaman.

The highlight (for me at least) will be the 11 tour of Oakwood Cemetery and Columbarium with Bill Habermann.
