Fort Walla Walla Museum presents Living History and Museum After Hours

Living History Presentation features Blue Mountain Locomotive


October 17, 2019

On Sunday October 20 Gary Lentz will portray William Tye, an assistant conductor working for Dorsey Baker’s Walla Walla & Columbia River Railroad. The presentation will begin at 2 p.m. During their visit, guests can see one of the locomotives William Tye would have operated. The Blue Mountain is the last existing narrow-gauge engine from Dorsey Baker’s WW&CRR. If weather permits, William Tye will show visitors the components of the train and describe the missing pieces that would have allowed the train to operate.


Museum After Hours: Greenland Not for Sale

Geologist, professor and author Bob Carson will be returning to Fort Walla Walla Museum to give a free presentation on Thursday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m. in the museum’s grand hall. Bob Carson visited Greenland in 2002 and returned in 2019 traveling by plane, helicopter, ship, kayak, and on foot. He visited four Inuit villages in Greenland, the world’s most sparsely populated nation. The museum is located at 755 Myra Road in Walla Walla.

Admission to each event is free to members and children under 6, $4 for children ages 6-12, $8 for seniors 62 and older and students, and $9 general admission.
