This Restaurant In Washington Used To Be A 19th Century Officers’ Home, And You’ll Want To Visit

Fort Vancouver National Historic Site was once a 19th century fur trading outpost that served as the headquarters of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s Columbia Department. Located along the northern banks of the Columbia River, it was established in 1825 by the Hudson’s Bay Company. In 1879, Fort Vancouver became Vancouver Barracks, the oldest army post on the West Coast.

Fort Vancouver’s Officers Row has 22 fully restored 19th century homes all listed on the National Historic Register. One of those homes is the Ulysses S. Grant House, which is now a restaurant that’s open to the public.
