The town is just a handful of buildings built around the highway that runs through it. The post office lost its official status in 1992, but still exists (although officially a department of Nooksack's rival town Everson) across from a small city park. Other noticeable remains are the two gas stations, a Dunny's Drive-in, and several churches. No major features except a small creek on the edge of town, near a cemetery containing many old graves.
Nooksack contracts their Police and sewer services through the nearby City of Everson.
Fire burned through the town, though, causing most of the growth to halt.
