Walla Walla Things to Do: 28 reviews and 68 photos
Fort Walla Walla isn't really a Fort. It's a museum of the history of Walla Walla. It's actually a good little museum with a lot of artifacts and antiques from Walla Walla going back about 200 years. The amount of care and attention to detail is quite impressive. It also contained a "village" - small buildings from an era long past - preserved and moved to this location. Visitors will definitely get a good idea of life in Walla Walla from its birth in the mid 1800's to the beginning of its second century in the mid 1900's.
Being a farming community, one would not be surprised that many of the exhibits center around farming. There is even a barbed wire exhibit. I've never seen a barbed wire exhibit before. I also had no idea that several patents were granted on different kinds of barbed wire. Up until now, I always considered barbed wire as being a nuisance that prevented me from exploring a part of the world on a hike.
Directions: West Walla Walla.
