Steilacoom is a quaint little town on the shores of Puget Sound. From the looks of it you'd think it's a remote village from another era, but it's right near the hustle and bustle of cities like Tacoma and Olympia, and just a few miles from Interstate 5.
Steilacoom happens to be the first incorporated town in the State of Washington (incorporated in 1854)
A few other firsts to boast about are:
The first brick building north of the Columbia River (which was also the first jail in Pierce County)
The first Protestant church building
The first school in Pierce County
The first official U.S. presence in Washington Territory (Fort Steilacoom, now located within the boundaries of Lakewood)
The first public lending library in Washington Territory
Steilacoom's ferry port services three Puget Sound Islands: Ketron Island, Anderson Island and McNeil Island. Many of Steilacooms homes offer beautiful views of Puget Sound and the outlying islands. The town is pretty small (2.07 square miles) and only has a population of around 6,100 people, yet it offers plenty of fun events, such as the annual Salmon Bake, Apple Festival, Car Show, Fourth of July Parade, its Farmers' Market and lots more.
With its many historical homes, fun events, quaint eateries, beautiful views and two museums, Steilacoom is a great destination for a day-trip. My special tip for a relaxing day:
Have lunch at a local restaurant overlooking the water, grab a coffee to go and hop on the Anderson Island ferry to relax, catch the breeze and enjoy the views (round-trip 1 hour). Then take a stroll through town and visit one of the museums.
Tourist attractions: Steilacoom Historical Museum (Cultural Attractions- Events- & Facilities; 112 Main Street), Steilacoom Tribal Cultural Center & Museum (Cultural Attractions- Events- & Facilities; 1515 Lafayette Street).
