What's Old

Vancouver, WA What's Old

Though Vancouver is a modern city keeping pace with changing times, it has the historical distinction of being the oldest permanent non- native settlement in the Pacific Northwest — since 1825 when the Hudson’s Bay Company headquarters was established here. We can easily step back into history by visiting the site of the reconstructed Fort Vancouver, the US Army’s Vancouver Barracks and Officer's Row. Also, Esther Short Park, located in the downtown blocks, is the oldest public square in the Pacific Northwest, dating back to 1855.
