Steilacoom is a small town overlooking the Puget Sound in Pierce County, Washington. Approximately 6,100 residents call the picturesque town home and live within its 2.07-square mile area. The town was the first to be incorporated in the state of Washington, which occurred in 1854.
A Brief History
Though it is not officially known, it is believed that Steilacoom is the anglicized name for the eponymous native American tribe that inhabited the area prior to white settlement. A sea captain from Maine, Lafayette Balch, founded the first European-American settlement in Washington in 1854. Four individual sites in Steilacoom are listed on the National Register of Historic Places today, including the oldest Catholic church in the state and the first Protestant Church north of the Columbia River.
Modern Day Life
These days, Steilacoom is home to a fairly affluent populace. Due to its proximity to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, many longtime military employees live there or commute through Steilacoom in order to bypass base traffic on I-5. People traveling to and from nearby Anderson Island and Ketron Island can catch a ferry in Steilacoom. Tourists and residents alike can enjoy a pleasant afternoon at Sunnyside Beach Park playing beach volleyball, playing in the water park, collecting rocks and shells, and watching trains pass.
