Comments

This rustic 1935 cabin is nicely sited on a large level lot near American Lake, offering a great opportunity for restoration or redevelopment. The structure itself has been gutted, but it remains connected to water, power, sewer and gas. Site plans, architectural renderings and inspection reports are all available for review in the Documents section. Features include salvageable framing, knotty pine paneling and a wood burning fireplace. The property also includes boat storage, fruit trees and mature landscaping with access to American Lake Park and its amenities.

First settled in the mid-1800s, the area we now call Lakewood was once known as The Prairie. A number of wealthy families built grand estates on the shores of Gravelly and American Lakes toward the end of the 1800s, and the Tacoma Country and Golf Club was established on American Lake in 1894 – the first golf club west of the Mississippi River.

Commercial and residential development in the area increased significantly following the Great Depression. Lakewood Colonial Center began construction in 1937 as one of the first suburban shopping centers in the country. As the area grew, other facilities were added, including what we now know as St Clare Hospital, Clover Park Technical College, Pierce College and Lakewold Gardens.

Public access to American Lake is available at two separate waterfront park sites with amenities that include beaches for swimming, tennis courts, a boat launch and fishing. The City of Lakewood was incorporated in 1995 and is currently the second largest city in Pierce County. It offers easy access to downtown Tacoma and Joint Base Lewis McChord.
