Lewis County is diverse and full of many opportunities from our most western community of PeEll to the Twin cities of Centralia & Chehalis to the most eastern community of Packwood. In addition, Mossyrock, Morton, Onalaska, Winlock, Toledo, Vader and Napavine are all small towns that hold the sense of community through festivals, lifestyle and a sense of family. Located in Southwest Washington midway between Seattle and Portland and midpoint between the Pacific Ocean and Mount Rainier, it is the perfect home base for our community members. Lewis County is rich with rural culture with its timbered acres, farmlands and rivers to support livelihoods, natural wildlife and outdoor interests of our residents.
