Follow I-5 north to Vancouver, Washington, exit 1C, then drive east to Mill Plain, turn south on Fort Vancouver Way to Evergreen Boulevard, and then east on Evergreen past Officer’s Row.

Fort Vancouver was the Columbia Department headquarters for the Hudson’s Bay Company. A replica of the Hudson’s Bay Company post stands in Fort Vancouver’s original location. The National Park Service interprets the HBC’s efforts in the Columbia Department and their interaction with the area’s Tribes and emigrating Americans at the original fort site and visitor center.
