The Cathlapotle Plankhouse is a full-scale replica Chinookan plankhouse built to interpret the Chinookan village of Cathlapotle that once stood on what is today refuge property. Lewis and Clark documented this village during their expedition and counted fourteen plankhouse and 900 people living in the village at the time.
