    Steilacoom is NOT in Tacoma. Its its own town, called "Steilacoom". Fix it. Thanks. Steilacoom High alum. Color me offended.

    Steilacoom…..first incorporated town in the state. Steilacoom High School is located IN Steilacoom, hence the name. Please be so kind to correct your mistake. Steilacoom High alum and offended as well.
