Learning about the history of this area was amazing and when we were able to go through on of the large homes, we were treated to a step back in time. Then we topped it off with... More

Definitely worth a stroll down this historic street to see these beautifully crafted homes. Make sure to stop at the Marshall, Grant and Howard homes.

The line of former Army officer's homes is a stunning reminder of days gone by. The main attraction, I felt, was the Marshall house which was formerly occupied by General George Marshall, WWII Army Chief of Staff (among other important jobs). The public portions are pristine and the volunteers inside are more than willing to provide a tour. Part of... More

The base has a number of historic houses and buildings. We drove through but it would be worth a walk through on a warmer day.

Beautiful historical buildings carefully maintained by the park service. They continue to improve and expand. A nice visit in conjunction with the Pearson Air Museum and Fort Vancouver.

A very nice street to drive or walk down. The buildings have been well preserved and are classified as historical buildings. It is nice to see such good examples of architecture from a period long ago.

We were attracted to Officers' Row by the Grant House. this is a collection of large residences on the now deactivated Fort Vancouver. The Grant House has been turned into a restaurant with several modestly sized rooms in which you can dine. We were most taken with the Marshall House, where the framer of the Marshall Plan lived as the... More

The Vancouver Foundation in collaboration with the US Park Service and the US Army has preserved, renovated, and re=purposed these many beautiful mid to late 19th century homes which once were officers quarters at the US Army base known as Fort Vancouver. Historical connections to US Generals Grant and Marshall. Fun place to visit.
