The Proctor District is one of Tacoma’s most celebrated and desirable neighborhoods, offering an urban village experience reminiscent of a simpler time. The area features some great old historic homes and a wonderful mix of owner operated shops and restaurants, including the upscale Metropolitan Market, Chalet Bowl, Rosewood Cafe and the historic Blue Mouse Theater – the oldest continuously operating movie theater in Washington State. The University of Puget Sound serves as an anchor institution in the neighborhood, providing access to a wide variety of academic, athletic and cultural activities. The Proctor District hosts a lively local farmer’s market every Saturday from April through November, the second largest farmers market in the city. The neighborhood offers excellent public schools, a couple of great parks and easy access to Point Ruston, Point Defiance Park and downtown Tacoma.
