History

Stillwaters Estates began as the vision of Dr. and Mrs. David Williams, a local physician in response to perceived community and individual needs. In July 1986 under their leadership, the 100 acres was purchased and then a sewer line was constructed along Cooks Hill Road to service the proposed community as well as numerous homeowners. Lewis County Officials were very supportive as the County was in economic depression. Approvals were obtained, seminars attended, engineers and architects consulted and banks approached for financing. A planned unit development (PUD) was unique to this county and financial conditions were risky. It was only after approaching several banks did we succeed and that was due to a Vice President of then Rainier Bank who loved this God-given vision and partnered with us.

Stillwaters is a private, gated, managed community grown to 206 individual homes and 82 rental units, abundant green areas, ponds, a park and walking areas. An activity hub the ‘Gathering Place’ includes social events, wood shop and exercise room as well as the business office. A gated, lighted RV area is available.

Colonial Residence, a non-profit assisted living facility was constructed in 1996 and enlarged later to 79 units.
