The John Stanger House, Clark County, Washington’s oldest privately built home that’s still at its original location, will open its doors to the public today, November 12, from 1 to 4 p.m. to celebrate its 150th anniversary. The home, a rare example of pioneer plank architecture, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
The event includes refreshments, brief presentations by Clark County Historical Society Director Brad Richardson, and tours of the house and grounds. Richardson’s presentations start at 2 p.m.
The house is located at the Jane Weber Evergreen Arboretum, 9215 S.E. Evergreen Highway in Vancouver. For more information, visit the Jane Weber Evergreen Arboretum’s Facebook page or call (503) 445-0991.
