To the south of Buckley you will find the South Prairie, Wilkeson and Carbonado in that order with a combined population of approximately 1,000. All three towns, like Buckley, share their origins as coal towns.
Wilkeson coal which was brought to Tacoma by Wagon in 1874 was vital to the development of Tacoma as coal was vital to fuel the foundries and shipping construction industry. In 1877 the National Pacific rail line connected Tacoma to Wilkeson enabling a more efficient transportation system. The Wilkerson mines employed thousands of European immigrants.
Wilkeson’s mines and sandstone quarry were used for the historic development of Washington and the State’s Capital. Wilkeson has five sites on the National Register of Historic Sites. You can find more information about Wilkeson at their own website.
Today the area’s natural beauty is in many ways unchanged and a big plus to living in the area. 3 and 4 bedroom homes start in the $150,000 range up to $350,000 depending on the age, location, and size of the property.
