The historical buildings established prior to both World Wars, housing famous American Generals including George Armstrong Custer, Ulysses Grant, and George Marshall, as part of the Officers' Row complex in downtown Vancouver, WA. Formerly a barracks in the Old West, and one of the few lasting tributes to George Marshall.

Wonderfully done tour of a distinguished American General's quarters lived in from 1036-38 when he was Commanding Ft. Vancouver prior to his Washington posting as Army Chief of Staff just prior to WW II. A must see.

Amazing house - on par with Pittock Mansion as for architecture and woodworking. Beautifully presented with period furniture, and a wonderful step back in time. A must-see in the PDX/Vancouver area.

Lovely architecture from previous century. The setting inside Fort Vancouver gives perspective to how our ancestors enjoyed living on larger plots of land.

The tour of the house is short but you can watch a video on Marshall. It was nice to get a short history lesson.
