The town name is pronounced: "Still-a-cum." It is the oldest incorporated town in the state of Washington, having been incorporated in 1854. Not just a historic district, the entire town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. So many places are out of history that being in Steilacoom seems like a step back in time. At Bair Drug & hardware Store you may see many relics on display from the "old days." It still operates a restaurant at the store with a 1906 soda fountain where you can buy milk shakes just like in the "good ole days."
