Summer Fest – Grant House 175th Birthday Party presented by Columbia Credit Union

September 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It’s time to celebrate the 175th birthday of the first home built on Officers Row with an afternoon open house and outdoor bash featuring musical entertainment, fun family activities, and cake, of course! Built in 1849, the house is named in honor of General Ulysses S. Grant, and careful restoration and preservation by The Historic Trust has been important to its reaching this exciting milestone.

Learn more about the home and its place in Vancouver history by browsing interpretive exhibits, and attend a history talk in the East Parlor (history talk times TBA). Free family activities are happening all afternoon, including lawn games, arts & crafts, and “Ants Ants Ants” will perform at 3pm. Enjoy a free birthday cupcake and refreshments – EVERYONE is invited to join in the celebration!

Also, Willful Wine at the Grant House will be open for business during the event, with seating and a full menu available for all ages.
