Recreation of the Original Fort Vancouver in Washington
Just ten minutes from the Heathman Lodge
Experience the Portland area's oldest history at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. Initially built in 1824 by the Hudson's Bay Company, Fort Vancouver acted as a center of commerce for fur traders of various nationalities and the indigenous tribes of the area. Today, the Fort gives an idea what life would have been like in the early 19th century when the Pacific Northwest was the frontier. Fort Vancouver and the surrounding barracks have been home at one time or another to various historical figures, including Ulysses S. Grant, who would later go on to become President of the United States.
Give yourself a few hours to explore the Fort, with guided tours, cultural demonstrations, and other unique educational opportunities for visitors of all ages.
Entry to the reconstructed Fort costs $7 per person or $30 for an annual pass for the pass holder and up to three adults.
