Fort Vancouver
At Fort Vancouver, discover the site's roots as a British fur trading post, built by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1829. Check in to the Contact Station for information and fee payment.

Pearson Air Museum
Pearson Field is one of the nation's oldest operating air fields. Exhibits at Pearson Air Museum highlight early military and civilian aviators here, and the site's World War I Spruce Mill, which produced aviation-grade lumber for Allied planes.

Vancouver Barracks
Established in 1849, Vancouver Barracks was the Northwest's first U.S. Army post. Stroll among these historic buildings, which are marked with wayside exhibits interpreting their history. Though the buildings are currently closed, the National Park Service is working with many partners to transform the barracks into a vibrant, public service campus.

McLoughlin House
Dr. John McLoughlin, the Chief Factor of Fort Vancouver, moved to his home in Oregon City, Oregon, after his retirement in 1845. Free tours of this home - one of the oldest in Oregon - take place on Fridays and Saturdays.
