Fort Vancouver to Fort Steilacoom Military Road

Recommended Posts

Here is my story of the old Mud Road, better known as the Fort Vancouver to Fort Steilacoom Military Road completed in 1861. The was the first wagon road through the Cowlitz Corridor between Portland and Olympia.

After the Northern Pacific Railroad was completed in 1872, between Kalama and Tacoma, the road began to fade away.

Very nice work! Your site was quite helpful on my 2009 bicycle tour of US 99 through Washington state.
