54/365 Fort Vancouver Fur Warehouse
A couple of weeks ago I walked around Fort Vancouver and thought that it might be nice to take the kids there today so that they could ride their bikes along the trails. We actually went inside the Fort and took a tour of the buildings. We went to the Bakehouse, Counting House, Jail, Bastion, Chief Factor's Residence and The Blacksmith Shop. There were people inside some of the buildings to tell us a little history about the place and a "blacksmith" inside the Blacksmith shop. It was VERY smoky inside, but the kids enjoyed watching him make a square nail. The picture I chose today is of the Fur Warehouse where furs and pelts were stored.
