Get to Know this Neighborhood

Steilacoom was one of the first cities to be settled on the Puget Sound and is full of fascinating historical landmarks. It is also one of the most beautiful Pierce County cities, with some of the original buildings still standing, and incredible views for miles.

Why this Neighborhood is so Great

Steilacoom is a small town with beautiful views. Everything is quite close together in town, and getting to nearby Tacoma and Lakewood for larger town amenities is pretty convenient. Whether commuting south to JBLM or north to Tacoma, Steilacoom is right in the middle!

What to do in this Neighborhood

There are 12 public parks to enjoy in Steilacoom, as well as 2 museums. You can also hop on the ferry to Anderson Island and truly have a Pacific Northwest outing!
