If you want to see a true part of history then you should go and see Officers Row in Vancouver, Washington. There you will see beautiful and historic homes that were, in the 1800's, officers quarters for the Army. They are now a variety of townhouses, businesses, and even a restaurant. The Grant House is a good place to go... More

This historical district in Vancouver is beautiful and interesting! Whenever I have guests, this is the first place I will take them. It features lovingly restored buildings which housed both officers and enlisted men beginning in the early years of the Pacific Northwest when fur trappers and explorers were expanding their territories. The officers' homes are beautiful, and there is... More

Officers row is a series of building built after the US Army took over the Fort from Hudson's Bay Co. Civil war generals and later ones served and lived here for a time. Combine with touring Fort Vancouver NPR.

So nostalgic. We used to live in the house next door to the Grant House. Wonderful sidewalks for walking, and greenspace to enjoy in good weather. It's a must see if you visit Vancouver. Rumor has it some of the houses are haunted....I can attest to one of them being haunted for certain!

If you are looking for a place to take your morning walk or just want to stroll through a beautiful neighborhood and look at turn of century homes, check out Officers' Row in the Ft. Vancouver National site. As you stroll you will find lots of interesting information panals that explain the past history of this area. Officers row is... More

Had a nice day so we took a stroll in the area. Lots of nice historical houses to see. Some were open for tours with gift shops inside. Reminded me of some plantation houses in the south. Huge yards and grounds in the area. Nice drive through the area.

If you are in Vancouver, driving along or parking and walking along Officer's Row is a relaxing and easy way to admire beautiful mid-nineteenth century architecture and enjoy a lovely view of the Willamette River. I took my mother here and she admired the homes and river view from the car. We got out of the car to walk around... More

Beautiful homes on a tree lined street. Have lunch at the Grant House on the porch. Terrific menu, great food.
