"Wright Park, a 27-acre park near downtown Tacoma, was donated to the City in 1886 by the Tacoma Land Company, and named after its president, Charles B. Wright. This deeded property, in 1873, was the focal point in an unused plan for the residential portions of the city, developed by Frederick Law Olmsted." "In 1907, William W. Seymor donated money to fund the building of the conservatory in Wright Park." Front of the conservatory.
