If you are in Vancouver and you miss this location, you have missed Vancouver. You must be in B.C. - the other vancouver. Do yourself a favor and don't just drive through, but get out and walk. The army quarters that is now part of the National Park Service is south of Officers Row. The Grant House - one of... More

Just as named: old , now decommissioned Fort Vancouver Army Post, now decommissioned and the city has acquired a lot of it including the old officers row, most of it dating back to the early 1800's. It was all restored in the 70's and is beautiful to look at. Three buildings are open to the public; a restaurant, a museum... More

The houses have all been lovingly preserved and restored for modern use as commercial space and one is a very good restaurant for lunch and... More

Nice historic homes, now various businesses. Everyone was friendly and welcoming in letting us look around. The proprietor of the Grant House allowed us to walk around and look at things. It looked like a good restaurant, but we had eaten prior to arriving. If you are able to use your imagination to see historical figures, the grounds are evocative.
