To the west, at the junction of the Walla Walla and Columbia Rivers, is the site of a trading post built in 1818.
Fort Walla Walla was a vital link in the region's fur trade, and helped open up the Northwest to the white man. From this post traders and trappers pushed into the rich Snake River basin.
Pioneers on the overland trek to the Oregon country in the 1840's found its farms a source of supply, and employees were among the area's first permanent settlers.
The fort was abandoned by Hudson's Bay Company the start of the Indian War in 1855.
