Lantern Tour: An Evening at the Fort
The Lantern Tour Series offers attendees an opportunity to view many of the resources of Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in a different light - at night, on foot, and by candle lantern!
"An Evening at the Fort" is a wonderful opportunity to experience the reconstructed Hudson's Bay Company fort at night. As in past years, each adult attending the program will carry their own candle lantern and tour with a park ranger through the reconstructed fort's Counting House, Fur Store, Chief Factor's House, Kitchen, and Bake House.
In each building, visitors will experience historical vignettes with costumed living history interpreters, including graduates of the park's Youth Volunteer Programs. Visitors will learn what activities would have occurred during the evening hours at Fort Vancouver. Due to program length, these tours are recommended for children ages 10 and over.
