Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Social History Project, 1999-2005

The Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Social History Project presents professionally researched and written overviews of the historical importance of the Fort Vancouver National Site. The site, located in Vancouver, Washington, consists of 366 acres reserved by Congress in 1996. The publicly owned land encompasses a variety of historic, cultural, and natural resources, including the Hudson's Bay Company's Fort Vancouver, Pearson Air Museum, Vancouver's Water Resources Education Center, and the the U.S. Army's Vancouver Barracks and Officer's Row. Four partners administer the site cooperatively: the City of Vancouver, the United States Army, the State of Washington, and the National Park Service. The Center for Columbia River History is located on the site.

The project's three narrative studies, with directions for future research are available for downloading in PDF form by clicking on the links below.
