Tacoma’s 111-year-old Mason House, Where Suffragists Gathered, Is For Sale
TACOMA (AP) — A 111-year-old mansion once the center of Tacoma's suffragist movement is on the market at $798,000.
The News Tribune reports that the 4,800-square-foot Mason House is being sold for only the fourth time in its history.
The mansion that contains Greek revival and colonial-style influences is in the city's Proctor District.
It was built in 1905 for the John Quincy Mason family at a cost of $12,000.
At the time, John Quincy Mason's wife, Virginia Mason, was a national leader in the movement for the right of women to vote.
Current mansion owners David Kenworthy and Cher Maplestone credit Virginia Mason with designing the house that included large public areas they believe were used for gatherings of suffrage groups.
