Many residents have moved to Eatonville because of the small-town, family atmosphere. They would like to invigorate the local economy while preserving its small town character.
Town population abput 2000 with about 750 households. (35% with children) Some residents now commute to work in Puget Sound cities, such as Tacoma, Seattle, Olympia, and Puyallup. Historically, Eatonville has been the commercial hub of rural southern Pierce County, however, encroaching commercial development from Puyallup and Tacoma has affected local business owners.
