Fort Vancouver & Apple Trees Metal Magnet
The British Hudson's Bay Company opened the primary fur trading post "Fort Vancouver" on the Columbia River in May 1825. Today, a replica fort matching original specifications stands on the archaeological remains, built by the National Park Service. The Fort is the centerpiece for Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and more than 300 volunteers help host the Park's "Living History" programs with blacksmiths, carpenters, gardeners, cooks and re-enactors.
Near the Fort is an apple orchard and the oldest apple tree in the Pacific Northwest, planted by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1826! Today Washington, the Evergreen State, is noted worldwide for some of the finest apples in the world. The state produces more apples than any other in the Union.
