Visiting Frenchtown

The Frenchtown Historic Site had its official opening on Saturday. Some of the first visitors got to walk up the trail to the cemetery marker, as well as read all the interpretive signs along the way.
I had submitted this as secondary art for Sunday's story, but I'm glad the editors used the primary photo instead. I still like this one because it implies the solitude one feels atop that hill. For 150 years, the settlement and the Battle of Walla Walla have failed to be remembered and marked properly. Now, thanks to the folks with the Frenchtown Historic Foundation, everyone can learn about what happened there in December 1855.
