The Hidden Houses are a pair of historic houses located in Vancouver, Washington. They are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The historic Lowell M. Hidden and W. Foster Hidden houses have helped shaped the face of Vancouver, Washington. The Hidden family has been present in Vancouver since the 1860s with Lowell Mason Hidden being the first to arrive from New England in 1864.
In 1871, Lowell M. Hidden started the Hidden Brick Company. It's estimated that 60 million bricks were made there and built many of the historic buildings in downtown Vancouver including the Mother Josephs Providence Academy in 1873, and the St James Cathedral in 1885.
Lowell M. Hidden died in 1923 and his sons W. Foster and Oliver Hidden took over the brick company. The partnership ended in 1940 when Oliver Hidden died, leaving the company to W. Foster. Today, the Brick company is owned by Robert Hidden, W. Fosters son, who took over the business after W. Foster died in 1963.

  • Really great little restaurant now open! They have a pretty small menu, but I honestly like that in a restaurant since it means they're actually good at what they do. Their wine is a generous pour...  more »
  • Stopped in to treat my love with a glass of wine for her birthday. Friendly staff, nice intimate venue, she enjoyed the wine and we both enjoyed the decadent fried Camembert appetizer.  more »
  • I absolutely love this place!The staff was so sweet and gave us lots of suggestions on food and wine. He even gave us a mini Greek lesson. I felt like I was back in Athens. And the food, oh the food was absolutely amazing!! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We stumbled on it by accident but will definitely be coming back.
  • One of the best places in Vancouver. The food is very good, but the atmosphere is what makes this place worth visiting. Do not go here if you are in any kind of hurry. Plan on ordering a bottle of wine and sticking around for the show. Lots of fun. One suggestion for improvement, ditch the glass table tops and just use linen table cloths.
