Officers Row
Topic: History

It was a beautiful day for a nice walk.  I went on a walk the Clark County Historical Museum put on.  Each year they have several different walks which are very nicely done.  They charge a fee which helps the museum and isn't very much, about $5/walk.  There are 12 of them this summer on Friday and repeated on Saturday by in a different order.  

The walk today was along Officers Row at Fort Vancouver.   There are some beautiful houses there, some more than a century old.  Most of them have businesses in them which helps in the upkeep of the homes and gives the businesses a classy place to do buiness.  It's a win/win.

Fort Vancouver is a National Historic Site with a fort, which, of course, has been build recently but is nicely done.  There are a lot of school buses this week as teachers try to figure out what to do with a bunch of kids who are very anxious for school to end.  The exhibits at the fort are very interesting and they show both historic and archaeological aspects.
