Long Description:


I traveled The Oregon Trail with an Elderhostel group from Kansas City/Independence, Missouri to Oregon City, Oregon June 13-28, 2007. We traveled to Walla Walla, Washington on Tuesday, June 26. We briefly visited the Whitman Mission Historic Site--Waiilatpu, “Place of Rye Grass”--on the banks of the Walla Walla River. Alice Clarissa Whitman (1837-1839) was born three months after Marcus and Narcissa Prentiss Whitman's arrival. Sadly, the little girl drowned in the Walla Walla River just two years later on June 23, 1839. She was buried on the hillside above the mission.
