Established in 1890, Spanaway is located in unincorporated Pierce County, Washington, fifteen miles south of Tacoma on State Road 7, the "Mountain Highway", and adjacent to the east boundary of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
On the cover: This 1946 image of Spanaway businesses and business owners was found after being stored and forgotten for 67 years by the photographer's heirs. The chapter "Post-war Economy" features 32 of the found business photographs, along with others from the 1940s provided by local families.
