Re: “This old house might become a museum,” (TNT, 11/19).
Thank you for covering the recent move, by the South Pierce County Historical Society, of the Tofu House across town in Eatonville.
This building holds important evidence of a bygone era that can now be shared. The Tofu House symbolizes early Eatonville’s Japanese-American citizens. It will help tell their story, and the town’s as well.
We also thank individual donors and organizations that have gotten us this far in preserving the 110-year-old building, including the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, the Ben B. Cheney Foundation and The Greater Tacoma Community Foundation.
Never miss a local story.
We still seek funding to repair and restore the Tofu House, and install interpretive exhibits. A time capsule is also planned. Please visit our “Save the Tofu House” campaign page at www.gofundme.com/2m9d9rzu. Donations can also be mailed to: Save the Tofu House, PO Box 1966, Eatonville WA 98328
