Homes For Sale in La Center Area

La Center, Washington is located in Clark County 2 miles east of I-5 in Beautiful SW Washington state. La Center is north of Ridgefield, south of Woodland, 16 miles north of Vancouver proper, and is within 2 miles new Ilani Casino and Resort!

The town is nestled on the East Fork of the Lewis River. 

La Center owns the proud title of "lowest crime rate" in the entire state of Washington!

Historically, La Center was a hub of commerce for Lewis River trade, which helped the town flourish during the lumber industry boom.  However, the town suffered a great decline in the 1980s due to depletion of the forests along with lack of other industries.  At that time it was decided to allow card-room gambling.  This proved to be the right decision to bring this town back from the brink sending the population souring from about 500 in 1990 to more than 2,500 now!

The Cowlitz Indian tribe called La Center, Washington home for many, many years and now they are the owners of the Ilani Resort and Casino.  Though the Cowlitz tribe is more disbersed today, there are still many in the La Center area and their community and proud heritage is now recognized by the federal government.
