Tacoma church on ‘endangered' list

TACOMA — The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation added Tacoma's Holy Rosary Church to its list of Washington's Most Endangered Places, which raises awareness about threats facing important historic and cultural places in the state.

Holy Rosary was designed by C. Frank Mahon of Lundberg & Mahon of Tacoma and dedicated in 1921. It has a Gothic revival style and is in the form of a Latin cross, the Trust said in a press release. It is also prominent in the skyline, as it is at the terminus of Tacoma Avenue, a major corridor, and visible from Interstate-5. It was also one of the earliest city of Tacoma landmarks when designated in 1975.
