Fort Vancouver is a National Historic Site offering period furnishing within several buildings. This site reflects the atmosphere of the early 19th-century trading post.

You can check out the houses and the Cedar Creek Grist Mill. This grist mill is the only old-fashioned grain-grinding mill that remains in the State. One of the local dining options is Crave Grille.
