Description

Fort Vancouver National Historic Site is an urban oasis, a national park nestled in the heart of the Portland-Vancouver Metropolitan Area. Rich in history and cultural significance, the park is a learning laboratory where you can connect with the people, places, and stories of the past. From reading the latest news release to perusing photos from a special event, there are many ways to learn about the park and understand why it is one of just over 400 units in the National Park System today.
