Camas benefits greatly from its proximity to the regional population centers of Vancouver and Portland. However, the city has also taken pains to preserve some of its own long heritage, and offers a pleasing blend of history and progress, from a modern, state-of-the-art public library to several buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
We’ll explore the downtown area and note how the nearly complete shutdown of the paper mill has changed the atmosphere in this historic town. The downtown now hums with activity in the cafes, restaurants, art galleries and shops.
This tour covers about about 2 miles in the downtown and surrounding neighborhood. There is one steep ascent, otherwise the walk is on level urban terrain.
The fee for this narrated tour is $15. You may pay with cash, check or credit card at the start of the tour. You may also use PayPal by following this link: http://bit.ly/22q0waD
Look for us just in front or inside the cafe. Look for the red and white Meetup sign.
