About Us

The Points Northeast Historical Society, located at Browns Point Lighthouse Park in Northeast Tacoma, Washington, is a local group of volunteer members who have taken on the preservation and promotion of the early historical roll the Browns Point Lighthouse played in the development of the Tacoma area of the Puget Sound.

The society provides a unique experience to the public, in an effort to promote the history of the area, by renting out its turn of the century (1903) lighthouse keeper’s cottage located within the county park on the shore of the Puget Sound. To learn more about this unique and gratifying experience, visit our Cottage “Keeper’s┬áDuties” page.
