Tidbits of History
Flowing from the slopes of Mount Rainier, the Puyallup River enters the Puget Sound in a broad delta at the head of the bay. Tribes of the Puyallup and Nisqually Native Americans had established several settlements here and they call the area Squaszucks. The natives called Mount Rainier "Tacobet", meaning "Mother of Waters". However the interpretation by the white man was "Tahoma".
The first recorded Euro-American settler in Tacoma was Swede Nicolas Delin. In 1952 he built a water-powered sawmill at a creek that entered the head of the bay. A small community grew up around this mill but did not become established until after the Indian wars of 1855-1856. In 1968, a developer by the name of Morton McCarver purchased land in the area that had already been platted and filed under the name Tacoma. McCarver then began a campaign to attract settlers and the Pacific Northwest Railroad. Indeed in 1873, Tacoma was selected as the railroad's western terminus although they built its depot two miles south of Tacoma city and named it New Tacoma. Rapid development ensued as Tacoma linked to the rest of the nation by rail in 1883, and "City of Destiny" became the town's motto.
In 1884, New Tacoma and Old Tacoma agreed to merge and incorporate. By 1890 there were 36,000 people living in Tacoma; two years later the population had swelled to 50,000. In 1893 our nation went into an economic decline, but by 1901 warehouses and grain terminals lined the waterway for a distance of two miles. Tacoma had become the "Lumber Capitol of the World" with the Weyerhaeuser Timber company becoming a major economic force. Commencement Bay was named an official US Port of Entry in 1918. Today, the Port of Tacoma has developed into the sixth largest container port in North America and one of the top 25 container ports in the world.
Today Tacoma is one of the Northwest's leading cities; landmarks such as the 1911 Union Station and the 1918 Panatages and Rialto theatres have been restored to their former grandeur. There is much to see and do when you visit this "City of Destiny".
Legume Hints & Nutrition
The USDA recommends that adults eat three cups of beans or legumes per week for the maximum health benefit. Legumes are naturally low in total fat, contain no saturated fat or cholesterol, and are an excellent source of protein, calcium, iron, folic acid, and potassium. Beans should always be sorted, cleaned and washed to remove any small rocks, etc.
