About The Whitman Mission and the Oregon Trail

The Oregon National Historic Trail does not pass through the Whitman Mission just west of Walla Walla, even though the first emigrants traveled that way. The original route to the Mission has been undocumented for more than 170 years. The story of finding that route through evidence in trail documents and field research is presented by Dave Welch, long-time member, officer, and current chair of the mapping and marking committee of the Oregon-California Trails Association.
