Clark County Historical Museum 2014 Walking Tours

The Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) is gearing up for their historical walking tour season. This is a perfect opportunity to learn more about where you live and explore the many historic sites and neighborhoods in and around Clark County. The walks are scheduled for Fridays (12:00 pm to 1:00 pm) and Saturdays (9:00 am to 10:00 am) from May 30th through August 29th. Reservations are REQUIRED. Call 360-993-5679 to purchase a ticket; cost is $5 for members and $7 for non-members.

May 30th will launch the event series with a historical walk down Officers Row. This area of Clark County is part of the Vancouver National Historic Reserve and showcases twenty one of the former homes of U.S. military officers stationed at the Vancouver Barracks in Vancouver, Washington. Officers Row boasts a beautiful park like setting that is a perfect place to take a stroll.
