Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM)'s History Walking Tours is an annual and popular series that offers an opportunity to get out and visit some of Clark County's most fascinating neighborhoods and city centers. The tours kick off on Friday, June 1 along Vancouver's Officers Row.
Summertime is the right time to wander through and learn the stories of people who have lived, worked, and carved out their place in our area’s history. A mix of memories, research, and architectural details, our history tours are a fascinating glimpse through the windows of time.
Guides will lead up to 25 people for approximately a mile, making frequent stops along the way to view buildings, tell stories, and answer questions. Good walking shoes and balance aids are recommended, as terrain varies and consists mostly of city sidewalks.
Each weekend highlights a different destination:
- Vancouver: Officers Row (June 1-2), Esther Short Neighborhood (June 15-16), Lower Main Street (June 22-23), Middle Main Street (June 29-30), Uptown Village (July 6-7), and Hough Neighborhood (July 13-14)
- Around the County: Heritage Farm (July 20-21), Downtown Camas (July 27-28), Downtown Ridgefield (August 3-4), and Downtown Battle Ground (August 10-11)
All are welcome on the tours, though they are best suited for those 13 years and older. All persons attending over the age of six need a ticket, and tours happen rain or shine. Please dress and hydrate appropriately. Downtown Ridgefield tours are free to Ridgefield residents (registration still required).
