Walla Walla in the 1860s by Alan H. Patera

This book is based on The Washington Statesman Newspaper in the 1860s and told in the form of direct quotes from the paper. In the 1860s Walla Walla began to realize its agricultural potential as the valleys of the Walla Wall and Touchet rivers were settled by farmers and new crops were introduced.  Then came more and more mining strikes in Idaho and Oregon, which solidified Walla Walla’s position as a trading and supply center that eventually extended into southern British Columbia and to the mines of Montana.

By the end of the 1860s, Walla Walla had been transformed from an outpost of civilization into the thriving center for a populous and prosperous area.  The town had a bustling business center and all the trappings of a fine society, with churches and academies, flour mills and a carriage factory.

Paperback, 60 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches. This book contains numerous photographs, both 19th century ones and others taken recently.  People and places are indexed.
