Special Saturdays with The Historic Trust

May 21st, 2022:  May is Historic Preservation Month!

Historic place-savers pour their time, energy, and resources into protecting places they care about. This is your chance to step into the work boots of a place-saver, roll up your sleeves and discover the fun of historic preservation. During this event, you can:

  • Tour the Grant House to see the rehabilitation work that is in progress
  • Examine building materials that were used in the construction of our historic buildings
  • Reimagine the Marshall House in a colorful Queen Anne paint scheme
  • Take a historic photo scavenger hunt, as you compare today’s Officers Row to photos from its construction over 130 years ago!
Saturday, May 21st
10 am – 2 pm
Check-in for this program is at the Grant House,
1101 Officers Row, Vancouver, WA. Activities take place along Officers Row.

Recommend ages: ages 12 and up. Kids ages 4 to 11 will need adult support.

Cost: FREE, Thanks to our sponsor Columbia Credit Union

The Trust recognizes the need to continue to adapt to our changing health climate. As a result, Special Saturdays may be virtual, in person, or a combination of both. Keep an eye out for additional information about these awesome opportunities.

Community partners are always invited to participate in Special Saturdays. For more information, contact Bethany at bethany.spitzer@thehistorictrust.org or 360-992-1818.
