Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 15, 1970):
The fort was the first permanent Anglo-American settlement on Puget Sound, serving as a communications and supply center for other trading posts. The fort's one-story granary, built in 1843 of log construction, and the Factor's House are the only surviving original examples of Hudson's Bay Company buildings still standing in the United States. Moved in 1934 from their original site to Point Defiance Park, today both Granary and Factor's House are restored and open to the public.
