Lantern Tours at Fort Vancouver Highlight History After Dark

hey! sharing is caring :)
Upcoming dates:

See Fort Vancouver in a whole new light…by lantern! The Fort Vancouver National Historic site will again be offering its popular Lantern Tours series for the 2019-2020 season. These popular guided tours lead participants on an after-dark experience through either the reconstructed Fort Vancouver or the historic Vancouver Barracks.

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. Peek into the past with vignettes by costumed interpreters and learn about your urban national park then and now. These vignettes transport the visitor back in time to exhibit what life was like at Fort Vancouver in the 1840s.

Lantern Tours: An Evening at the Fort take place inside the Fort Vancouver stockade. All Lantern Tours take place at least partially outdoors and will occur rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.
