A Little About Lakewood

With an economy highly dependent upon the neighboring military bases of Fort Lewis and McChord Air Force Base, the city of Lakewood became officially incorporated on February 28, 1996. As a major suburb of Tacoma and home to Western State Hospital, the city has a population just shy of 58,900. The 18.95 square miles that make up this city within Pierce County consists of several lakes and creeks that flow throughout it and drain into the Puget Sound.

Within Lakewood, the Clover Park School District operates all public schools; there are two colleges, Pierce College Fort Steilacoom and Clover Park Technical College, and two private schools in the city as well. The City of Lakewood used to be contracted with the Pierce County Sheriff’s office up until 2004, in which during that time they appeared in many episodes of the TV program COPS.

Lakewood is home to Fort Steilacoom, which was one of the first military forts built by the United States north of the Columbia River back in 1849. It was established because of the uproar among civilians about the massacre at the Whitman mission. Dr. Marcus Whitman and his wife Narcissa played an impactful role in establishing the Oregon Trail, but the Cayuse Native American tribe did not enjoy their company.
