Stillwaters Estates began as the vision of Dr. and Mrs. David Williams, a local Centralia physician and his wife. In July 1986 under their leadership, the first roads were started and the City of Centralia extended water and sewer lines to the property. Soon after, the City limits were extended to include what would become Stillwaters Estates Retirement Community in peaceful Lewis County, and construction on the first homes began in 1988.

Stillwaters Estates is not a Homeowners Association. Ours is a managed community, which is family owned and operated. Complaints and covenant violations are handled through the office.

To date, 75 of the 120 acres in Stillwaters Estates have been developed, resulting in a lovely, quiet gated community consisting of the following:

  • Approximately 206 individual, privately owned homes with a variety of floor plans.
  • Different styles of rental units with private patio entrances.
  • Wide paved streets and sidewalks which provide safe places for our residents to walk, drive and bicycle.
  • A large park area with two nature ponds that attract migrating birds and water fowl.
  • A paved path for walking and jogging around the park, ponds, and Gazebo.
  • A woodlands area with nature trails and river access for fishermen and bird-watchers.
  • A paved and fenced RV parking area.
  • A Community Building called “The Gathering Place” which provides a host facility for a variety of activities.
  • Colonial Residence, a beautiful colonial-style Assisted Living Facility with 80 apartments.
  • Locked security gates at both entrances at night.

Future development plans include:

  • More extensive nature trails.
