History

Millwood was officially incorporated on October 26, 1927. it was named for the local paper mill.

According to the Tacoma Public Library's Washington Place Names database: "In 1900, it was chosen as a station by the Spokane-Coeur d'Alene Electric Railway, and was named Woodward's for the family who owned the land along the railway route. When Inland Empire Paper Company built a paper mill they requested a name change to Milltown. Railway officials refused the change unless the Woodward family agreed. A compromise resulted, using the word mill combined with the first four letters of Woodward. It was incorporated October 27, 1927."
