About Us

The mission of Job Carr Cabin Museum is to bring Tacoma's birthplace to life through interactive learning for elementary students and our community.

The Museum is an authentic replica of Job Carr's log cabin, built in 1865 in Old Town, Tacoma. The Cabin served as the home of the first settler, the first post office and the first polling place in Tacoma. Job Carr was the first postmaster and the first mayor/city council president of Tacoma. The Museum displays historic artifacts from everyday life in early Tacoma.
