Located in Washington State's Pierce County, Browns Point is part of Tacoma, Washington. It's sometimes considered Federal Way or, more correctly, Northeast Tacoma. Originally called Point Harris, from a sail maker on Wilkes Expedition named Alvin Harris, the community was renamed later by local folks for a previous landowner. Browns Point Lighthouse is located at the tip of Browns Point – which now is completely automated and was once completely manned and initially lit in December of 1887.
Browns Point is supported by the Browns Point Improvement Club, also known by locals as BPIC. (http://www.brownspoint.org), which owns majority of the land next to the lighthouse. The Browns Point Improvement Club is well-known for the infamous Browns Point Salmon Bake.
