The Lodge

I missed the Urban Sketchers Tacoma monthly outing so I could attend the Fort Nisqually  volunteer training this morning.  I left early enough to do a sketch before it started.

This is the Lodge, the oldest standing building in Point Defiance Park.  It was built in 1898 from plans by noted Tacoma architect Carl August Darmer for the sum of $2,220.  It was the ome of the Ebenezer Roberts family.  Ebenezer served as Park superintendent until 1908.


Mike, our leader, shows the new volunteers the root cellar under construction (he’s in the red shirt in the center).


Bonnets were the subject of “Crafts of the Past” today.

A few more photos are here.
