One of the fastest-growing communities in Washington is the suburban city of Battle Ground. It’s located in Clark County, just a few miles north of Vancouver, WA. Roughly 20,000 people call Battle Ground home.

Strangely, the name Battle Ground is not an accurate reflection of the city’s history; in fact it’s an irony. In 1855, Captain William Strong settled a dispute with the local Klickitat tribe peacefully instead of with a fight. Upon his return, the townspeople mocked him by naming their area Strong’s Battle Ground, later shortened to just Battle Ground. Even with the city’s incorporation in 1951, the moniker stuck. The city of Battle Ground is now a popular area for new residents, where celebrations like Harvest Days, along with plenty of new development, draw the community closer together.
