Walla Walla has a truly fascinating history. At one time, the city was one of the biggest
 in the Columbia Basin area. The Hudson's Bay people settled early around the area, even before
the Whitman's came. When the mines opened in Idaho the area was alive with the hustle
and bustle of moving supplies and equipment. Supplies unloaded from Wallula
were packed through Walla Walla and up to the mines.

                     I'm hoping to bring some of this history back for you to ponder and enjoy.
                 History and Genealogy go hand in hand. Without the stories to bring the people alive,
            they are just names on a paper. With the stories they become alive once again. If you have stories,
                      letters you'd like to share please contact me and I'll put them on the site. - Nola Conway
