The Weyerhaeuser mansion.

One of Tacoma’s most historic – and expensive – homes is on the market for $8 million.

That’s the asking price for the nearly 50-room Weyerhaeuser mansion overlooking Commencement Bay in Tacoma’s North End, according to redfin.com.

The home for Northwest Baptist Seminary is being sold so Salem, Ore.- based Corban University can expand the seminary, now part of Corban’s School of Ministry, by moving a more central Puget Sound location, perhaps south Seattle.

    Didn’t the reporter for The News Tribune write that it would be on the market for $3 million?? Oops!

    In an earlier story.

    This is Steve Maynard, News Tribune reporter. My story on Oct. 4 said the mansion is assessed at more than $3 million, according to Pierce County records.

    Good picture, what with Hallowen coming up. Where’s the black cat?

  5. Concernedfather says:

    No harm, no foul. This property was probably assessed using Ken Madsen’s “Statistical Method”. The good citizens of Pierce County made up the 5 million dollars in under assessed value.
