I was impressed that neither "manifest destiny" or "noble indian" trope dominated this presentation. I have substantial knowledge of the Whitmans, less of the native Americans, and found this exhibition informative. Do walk to the top of the hill, a short hike, and get a sense of space and time that surrounded that place.

This is a good stop. This site tells the sad story of the native populations. Small visitor center and displays tell the story well. Very knowledgeable staff at the visitor center.

This was a nice little stop as we were heading out of Walla Walla. Clean facilities and a good paved walkway. After spending the weekend drinking and eating indoors it was nice to be outside walking. Once you get to the top, you have a view of the region. Information boards along the trail give you a little bit of history about the old settlement and it's significance.

I had a great experience here. There is a short video, displays of the Native American people and the environment during the time. Also, there is a pleasant walk with interesting information along the way.
