Don't confuse this Washington city in the far-southwest corner of the state 165 mi/265 km south of Seattle with the much larger Vancouver, British Columbia, or with Canada's Vancouver Island, both of which are just north of the U.S.-Canadian border.
Washington state's Vancouver is home to Fort Vancouver National Historic Site. This former fur-trading outpost and depot for the Hudson's Bay Company gives a glimpse of life in the settlement circa 1845. Near the fort is the Officers Row National Historic Monument. Among the 21 buildings are residences once occupied by Ulysses S. Grant and George C. Marshall. Three of the houses are open to the public.
