Fort Vancouver walk through


We went for a walk through the Fort Vancouver Historic Site and snapped some pictures along the way.  Today was a relatively quiet day and a good day to reacquaint ourselves with the site.  Below are some of the pictures to give you an idea what the place where we will work this summer looks like.  There will be a lot of reenactments, demonstrations and other activities to make this a fun three months!

Blacksmith at work

Looking along some of the restored buildings

Inside the medical doctor’s office

Inside the carpentry shop

A lathe to turn anything round… handles, furniture legs, etc….

Inside one of the bedrooms

Two canon in front of the Chief Factor’s House, mostly ceremonial

Family dining table in the Chief Factor’s House

Outside the communal kitchen

An old candle lantern

The Chief Factor’s House… two families lived here, and the whole camp was run from this building

The well — it required a lot of labor to haul all the water up by the bucket full
