Cathlapotle Plankhouse

This full-scale replica of a Chinookan-style cedar plankhouse is located at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge at the location of Cathlapotle, one of the largest Chinookan villages in the area.

This Lewis & Clark historical site is where the Corp of Discovery camped in November 1805 and again in March 1806. Visitors to the Plankhouse can learn about the culture and habitat of this area's original inhabitants.
