The Covingtons, Anne and Richard, had come to Fort Vancouver to teach children of the Hudson’s Bay employees. In 1848 the Covingtons entered a “donation claim” of 640 acres in the Fourth Plain area. Here they built this snug log cabin and established a boarding school run by Anne while Richard ran the farm.
The Covingtons log cabin was known as a center of hospitality and musical entertainment. They brought the first piano to the Pacific Northwest from England and taught music to many of the area’s children.
