Silcott Washington is an extinct community that was located 8 miles west of the current city of Clarkston, WA. The settlement began in the late 1880's.
By 1910 the town contained the warehouses, two houses, and two competing general stores owned by two half-brothers, Cliff Wilson and Bill Wilson.
The development of automobiles and better roads along the south side of the Snake River meant that folks in Silcott could shop in Clarkston; this killed the two general stores which were major focal points in the community. By about 1930, Silcott ceased to exist as a town and largely ceased as a community.
