DuPont is divided into several “villages”, each with its own design style and/or building contractors. As with many small towns around a military post, DuPont has a high active and retired military population. It is a short 10 min drive to JBLM. DuPont has many trails and green belts located throughout, including Sequalitchew Creek trail. The town is served by Steilacoom Historical School District.
