Walla Walla Wanderings: Whitman Mission

field

We took the Whitman Mission walking tour one afternoon while we were visiting Walla Walla. I was a bit frustrated with the way the information was provided — being that the Whitmans taught the Native Indians how not to be barbaric and how to use tools properly….But I guess we were observing the history of the Whitman Mission and not the history of the Native Indians that lived on the land prior. Even so, it was a beautiful property and former homestead, with the Oregon Trail going right throughout the middle of it. We had a nice walk and talk, discussing the historical events, and enjoyed the sounds and sights of the area.
