Today it is a living history museum within the boundaries of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma. Two of the original buildings, the Factor's House and the Granary, remain. In addition, there is a trade store, working blacksmith shop, laborers dwelling house, demonstration kitchen, and kitchen garden. Built in 1843, the granary is the oldest building in Washington state. The Factor's House and the granary are the only surviving Hudson's Bay Company buildings in the United States.
