Lantern Tours: Walking Vancouver Barracks

Oops. This event is over, but we have plenty of more great events coming up on our calendar.

January 28, 2017 - January 28, 2017

Lantern Tours: Walking Vancouver Barracks explores the U.S. Military history of the site. Each adult carries a lantern as a park ranger guides the group on an outdoor walking tour of the historic Army post. Visitors will learn about Ulysses S. Grant, Oliver Otis Howard, George C. Marshall, William S. Harney, and other significant figures in Vancouver Barracks' history. These tours are entirely outdoors, and they cover about a half mile over some uneven and unpaved ground. These tours begin at 7 pm, but visitors must arrive at 6:45 pm. Admission is $10 per adult and $7 per youth
