Graham is beautifully set in a dramatic backdrop of forests and mountains. It lies about 20 miles from Tacoma and neighbors the towns of Elk Plain, Spanaway, Puyallup South Hill, Orting and Frederickson. The name “Graham” transferred from camp boss Mr. Smith Graham to the logging area where he worked during the timber hey-day. Mr. Graham was the one who received the mail ‘off the hook” from the slowly moving train that still sometimes crosses Meridian (the old Barney-Larson road) at the Graham Hay Market, and mail bags destined for this area were tagged “Graham.” In 1908 Henry and Nancy Bates built a small house (where Mr. Graham perhaps got the mail), and Henry applied for the position of Graham’s first official postmaster.
