“This funny neighborhood feature is a short walk away. Walking down Denver Avenue will take you through downtown Kenton (coffee, restaurants, library, shopping). Our kids love his "Big Boots" and "Looking up his nose." When we walk away they ask for "More Paul Bunyan!" Plus the Max will go by at some point and everyone can check out "the train!"”

“ort Vancouver was a 19th-century fur trading post that was the headquarters of the Hudson's Bay Company's Columbia Department, located in the Pacific Northwest. Named for Captain George Vancouver, the fort was located on the northern bank of the Columbia River in present-day Vancouver, Washington. The fort was a major center of the regional fur trading. Every year trade goods and supplies from London arrived either via ships sailing to the Pacific Ocean or overland from Hudson Bay via the York Factory Express. Supplies and trade goods were exchanged with a plethora of Indigenous cultures for fur pelts. Furs from Fort Vancouver were often shipped to the Chinese port of Guangzhou where they were traded for Chinese manufactured goods for sale in the United Kingdom. At its pinnacle, Fort Vancouver watched over 34 outposts, 24 ports, six ships, and 600 employees. Today, a full-scale replica of the fort, with internal buildings, has been constructed and is open to the public as Fort Vancouver National Historic Site”

“First open to the public in 1937, the Kiggins Theatre was originally one of the most luxurious movie theaters in the Pacific Northwest. Kiggins survived sudden closures, near disastrous fires, and unruly crowds to find its place on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012. Today, patrons can enjoy an array of entertainment at the theater including independent and classic films, as well as community engagements and live performances. A great date idea in Vancouver, or a fun family experience, half the excitement of catching a show at Kiggins is the surrounding ambience of the revamped atmospheric theater.”

“One of four unique sites to explore at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, the 21 homes that comprise Officer's Row were once residence to a variety of soldiers, officers, and families of the fort. Through massive restoration processes over the last 30 years, these historic dwellings have been revamped to their former grandeur and now encompass a mixed-use residential and business neighborhood. Simply strolling down the shaded sidewalk of this aesthetic neighborhood is a fun thing to do, and specific homes like the Ulysses S. Grant House and the George C. Marshall House are decorated in period antiques and open to the public.”

“Where else in the Northwest can you stroll past 22 preserved Victorian homes on the National Historic Register? The tree-lined promenade known as Officers Rows is a favorite with runners, dog walkers, history enthusiasts, and family's for its picturesque beauty. Here are a few stops not to miss when you are visiting: The Ulysses S. Grant House is the oldest on Officers Row, built in 1850 as a log structure and later covered with plank siding. Although President Grant never lived in the Grant House, he served as quartermaster at Fort Vancouver from 1852 to 1853 and was the leading general in the Union Army.
