Download new, free Clark County mobile app for electronic devices
Vancouver, WA – Historic Clark County is a new, free mobile app that puts local history at your fingertips after you download it to your electronic device. The app was developed by the Clark County Historic Preservation Commission with financing from the Washington Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation, city of Vancouver and Clark County.
The app features:
- Official historic register buildings and sites anywhere in the county.
- Information on each site’s historical significance, with photos and the year it was designated.
- The ability to share the information through social media.
Use the app to discover Clark County’s rich cultural heritage and its breathtaking natural beauty. For example, tour the northern part of the county and stop in Woodland at the Cedar Creek Grist Mill, where you can pick up a sack of freshly-ground flour. Another site to see is Vancouver’s Covington log cabin, which once housed the region’s first piano and was the center of hospitality and entertainment in the 1850s.
The app can help you find the Parkersville National Historic Site in Washougal. For centuries, Chinook Indians fished and trapped along these banks of the Columbia River, banks that are now great for a summer picnic. Sip a latté and window-shop along the streets of downtown Vancouver, where more than two dozen well-preserved and historically important sites are part of the city’s commercial core.
To download the app, search for Historic Clark County in the Apple App or Google Play store.
