You are invited to learn about the VHA's History. As part of our 75th anniversary, we have installed a timeline display in our lobby at 2500 Main Street. The timeline highlights the four significant eras of our history: The War Years (1942 – 1955), when we built 12,500 units of housing for Kaiser Shipyard workers and their families; Redevelopment of McLoughlin Heights (1956 – 1962), when we removed the wartime housing and created the neighborhoods you see there today, Early Public Housing (1963 – 1992) when we began providing housing for low-income families; and Affordable Housing (1993-Present); the wide variety of subsidized and affordable housing we currently provide throughout Clark County .
Our thanks goes to the Clark County Historical Museum who created the display for us.
The display is a permanent installation that begins just inside the doors of our office building. The building is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. Please come learn about our role in providing affordable housing in Vancouver and Clark County for the past 75 years.
