Welcome to Sumner

Vintage Americana vibes, sweet rhubarb pie, and an enchanting Main Street.
Basking in the splendor of Mount Rainier's backdrop, wedged between Puyallup to the west, Auburn to the North, and Bonney Lake to the east, Sumner is easily one of Washington's most vibrant and attractive neighborhoods. A sweet spot close to eclectic commerce hubs like Seattle and Tacoma, Sumner is brimming with small-town charm and vintage treasures!
Sumner was actually once named Stuck Junction before it became known as Franklin. The Post Office Department ultimately suggested another name change to avoid confusion, as "Franklin" could be one of many places in the U.S. called Franklin. So a teeny-weeny ballot was called — three townsmen wrote a name on a piece of paper, put the pieces in a hat, and had a young boy pick one of the slips. You guessed it: the name "Sumner" was picked — the perfect name for the rhubarb pie capital of the world!
Today, a stroll through Main Street might have you wondering if anything has changed over the decades. You’ll see everything from $400K Tudor revival homes with dazzling lawns and white picket fences to higher-priced Colonial residences featuring large garages and exquisite architectural touches and even Prairie-style homes nestled on perfect terrain with sweeping views of green fields and lots more.
