Our Week in Portland, Part VI

We managed to cross the river into Washington and visit Fort Vancouver. It is a completely reconstructed National Park that tells the story of early European settlement driven by the fur trade.

Outside the walls was a food garden and orchard.

We started at the counting house.

I imagine this well was easy to use, but not as easy as turning on a tap. Behind the well is the bakery, which is half-in and half-out of the fort walls.

These two cabins are what most of the settlers would have lived in.

Attached to the fort is the Pearson Air Museum which focused on the early days of aviation and had an awesome display circa World War 1. Here is the inside of the a tent that housed the men who milled the wood to make the airplanes.
