Vassault Park History

This property was purchased from the City of Tacoma on January 19, 1961 for the cost of the unpaid LID assessment ($776.96). Vassault Park received its name from the street of the same name running along the west side of the park. The street was named for Ferdinand I. Vassault, the editor of the Tacoma News from 1891-1892.
