The second floor exhibit gives a good history of the Marcus Whitman family, which was unknown to us.

Look. Times change. There was a time when you could get away with this simplistic kind of presentation of a complex history. But that was long ago. If you are a fan of Dave Manuel's depictions of manifest destiny in paintings or bronze, you will...More

The art display is a vivid depiction of the Marcus Whitman, his wife and travels, and Walla Walla history in chronological order. It includes the area Native Americans in a realistic way and true to history. The series is authentic and accurate.

Learn the detailed history during the years of discovery of this colorful and rich area. The history is presented in a series of paintings chronological arranged. It proved impossible to break away until the last painting was digested.

This exhibit lines several hallways inside the Marcus Whitman Hotel. It tells the story of Marcus Whitman in detail. Especially interesting to history buffs.

The art gallery and the Marcus Whitman Hotel is fabulous. An account of the Whitman history in a 35 piece display from the handshake in New York to the Silence of the Waiilatpu. Not for children as it is graphic. The display is historically accurate...More
