Battle Ground

Battle Ground and the surrounding areas have a population of a little over 20k, the area is about 13 miles from the city of Vancouver. It has ranked 4th in growth in Washington State.

With views of the iconic Mt St Helens, Battle Ground and the surrounding areas are still very rural despite the growth in the last few years. Battle Ground got its name from a standoff between a group of the Klickitat peoples and a military force in Vancouver. In 1855, when this occurred the Klickitat tribe was led by Chief Umtuch and the Vancouver army was led by Captain William Strong. This event took place in what is now called Battle Ground, dubbed the name by Captain Strong. Two of the schools in Battle Ground are named after Chief Umtuch and Captain Strong. Every Summer Battle Ground hosts Harvest Days, which has a parade, carnival, and other community events. Yacolt and Amboy are located NE of the Battle Ground city limits. The beautiful Moulton Falls and Chelatchie Prairie railroad are two of the popular attractions around as well as a few wineries.
