OUR MISSION

During World War I, Camp Lewis established an Amusement center adjacent to Camp to divert soldiers from urban vice areas. The amusement center was named Greene Park in honor OF Camp's commanding General, Henry. Greene. The center opened in February 1918 and would grow to 48 concessions, including Orpheus and Hippodrome theaters, eating places, Skee Ball alley, Shooting Gallery, and a hotel. The Center draws large crowds for years and then, with the end OF War, troops go home and businesses close. For few years, it remain a small village, with residents including Angelo V. Fawcett, former Tacoma mayor. Today, only the former hotel survives, now in service as the Lewis Army Museum. Camp Lewis was constructed in 1917 as a World War I mobilization and Training Camp. 91 Division was first to prepare there for War. Its commander, Major General Henry. Greene, became concerned that troop training would be adversely affected by off-duty activities. He believed that vice-ridden areas of Seattle were especially harmful. The city was put off limits for a short time in late 1917 to encourage it to rid itself of prostitution and gambling. Major General Greenes ' anti-vice actions were part OF larger military acceptance OF tenets OF Progressive Movement. War was viewed as an opportunity to improve men's morals and to educate them. To provide a clean, wholesome alternative, Major General Greene worked with community and business leaders to develop a large Amusement Park across Pacific Highway from the main cantonment. A 100-acre site on Camp Lewis was set aside for this Amusement center, which would have no games chances and be otherwise free OF activities that were deemed vice. On October 22, 1917, Seattle and Tacoma business leaders formed Camp Lewis Amusement Company. Companies sell stock and obtain Bank loans to construct buildings to House restaurants, stores, and amusements. The total cost would be 900 000. Concessions in Park were leased to local business people, with payment set as a percentage of their gross sales. Camp Lewis Amusement Company hired distinguished Spokane architects Archibald Rigg and Roland Vantyne to design the Amusement Park. They produced a plan in November 1917 that included about 200 buildings, amusement rides, and a full-size replica of the Statue OF Liberty. On December 2 1917, Pratt and Watson Contractors OF Tacoma started construction on the first 35 buildings. However, work was delayed when they had difficulty finding laborers, due to so many men having been banked or having volunteered to join the military. Proctor Company OF Tacoma functions as a leasing company, finding tenants for the Park. The amusement center never reached its 200-building goal; when complete, it had 60 buildings, no replica OF the Statue OF Liberty, and no rides. On January 30 1918, while Major General Henry.
