The George Marshall house has free tours worth attending. Not sure they have them every day so I'd check ahead. Especially interesting for anyone interested in WWII and the role played by this five-star general and US statesman. Plus, you can have coffee or lunch two doors away at the Grant house.

I love officers row. The houses and park are wonderful. It's never crowded and quite and peaceful. The best park in Vancouver.

Officer's row in Vancouver, WA USA is a place to see history and contemplate the times this was the life for the officers and men stationed here. Houses have been restored and kept up to historic splendor.

When I lived in Vancouver this was one of my favorite spots to go, it's not exciting, but it's in a really good place to go for a walk. The speed limit by Officers' Row I believe is 20 mph. There is some parking nearby and not a lot of traffic. The old officer buildings are kind of fun to look at and on the other side of the street is a field where current soldiers will do some training exercises, past the field aways is the water front where you can see Portland across the river. I like it. A friend of my had her bridal shower in one of the old officer buildings and you can take a tour of 2 of the buildings.

I strolled along the Row again the other day and still pick up a historical nugget or two, while under the shade of the trees that line Old Evergreen where the homes front the roadway. The Marshall House; the Grant House; and the OO Howard House all offer a glimpse of another time, and I'd stop by the Grant House for food and/or drink if you can.

This is a wonderful area to walk and imagine what life was like during a different period and time in American history.

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 the best restaurants in Vancouver is located here. The Marshall House is a wedding venue. The history of this place and the nearby Fort Vancouver are worth a trip if you are visiting.

Missing this place is like going to St. Louis and missing the Arch.

I must say, though that the Grant house gave me the creeps! There is a very unhappy spirit there and is probably why the top floor is no longer open to the public! Scared the begeezus out of me!

This is a historic gem that puts you right back into the past. You can easily imagine what it was like in the early days. Beautiful in every way.
