Enjoy this pixel-roll of my earliest photography for organizations, or the historic Haddaway Hall in Tacoma, Wash.:
I photographed this series and more for archival, insurance, and marketing purposes for the preservation foundation. I enjoyed touring the mansion with its counterweight elevator, secret staircase, basement murals, large machines, early electric switches, the conservatory sunroom, the organ pipe room, the tudor architecture modded red, the carriage house, the rose garden, and Puget Sound vistas.
The mansion, first built by the Weyerhaeuser family, boasts sandstone with motifs of the Mrs.' favorite plant, the dogwood.
Haddaway Hall now lists for $6.4M USD after its prior host of 35 years, Northwest Baptist Seminary became Corban University School of Ministry. Money from the sale will go to Corban University. Previously, a Catholic convent and college used the grounds. Learn more on Tacoma KOMO. I like the tradition of utilizing the historic landmark for education.
