News and Events

      The McLoughlin House will be closed to the public starting December 2019 for much-needed repairs and rehabilitation and is scheduled to re-open in Spring of 2021. The McLoughlin House will receive:

          - A new foundation, gutters, mechanical system, stair rail and ADA remp.

          - New historically-accurate wallpaper, carpets and curtains.

      For progress updates, visit the blog at the Fort Vancouver website which will post progress updates and even feature articles written by the MMA.


 The historic Barclay House, including the bookstore, will re-open on February 7, 2020. Tours, events, and special programs will be ongoing, but will be modified to accommodate the McLoughlin House closure.
