The nearly-century-old J. M. Hendrickson Family Homestead in Tacoma belonged to several generations of one family that immigrated from Norway in 1888. The property — which includes an historic house, garage, and barn — was placed on Tacoma's Register of Historic Places three years ago. On Tuesday, Tacoma City Council granted the property owner's request to rescind the special designation, allowing a portion of it to be developed in an effort to address financial and medical hardships.
