Located on the north bank of the Columbia River, in sight of snowy mountain peaks and a vibrant urban landscape, this park has a rich cultural past. From a frontier fur trading post, to a powerful military legacy, the magic of flight, and the origin of the American Pacific Northwest, the park shares history at four unique sites. Discover stories of transition, settlement, conflict, and community at a reconstruction of the Hudson's Bay Company's Fort Vancouver, the U.S. Army's Vancouver Barracks, Pearson Air Museum, and the McLoughlin House in Oregon City, Oregon. The park's Visitor Center brings these four sites and stories together in creative, hands-on exhibits.
