About this title


Lakewood was a vibrant community long before it incorporated in 1996, though cityhood helped give the area one name and identity. In the mid-19th century, Lakewood was the site of British farms and the first US military base in Washington Territory. Men who became famous in the Civil War, such as George Pickett, served there. Native American leader Leschi, the victim of “judicial lynching” by civilians, spent his last days there. As Lakewood became a retreat for Puget Sound’s rich and famous, names such as Carman and Alexander―as famous in their day as the name Weyerhaeuser was and is―settled here, leaving behind reminders like Lakewold Gardens. One of Lakewood’s most famous residents was Ivan, a captive gorilla who captured the hearts of animal lovers worldwide.

About the Author:

Since 2005’s Images of America: Lakewood by Steve Dunkelberger and Walter Neary, history has marched on. No community could be prepared for Lakewood’s most historic and awful event: the November 29, 2009, murder of four police officers whose deaths made headlines around the world. There have been happier times too, including Claudia Thomas’s tenure as the first African American female mayor in Washington State. The authors searched museum archives and called upon families for photographs to tell the story of Lakewood through the faces of its legends.
