The Oldest Town In Washington That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once

Washington officially became the 42nd state in 1889, but long before that it had thriving towns, villages and tribes. Steilacoom is one of the communities that preceded our statehood – it was incorporated in 1854, making it the first incorporated town in what is now Washington. It also happens to be a charming and beautiful place.

Steilacoom is a great place to visit and makes for a nice day trip from Seattle or Tacoma. Here are some other historic places in Washington to check out.
