Whitman Mission National Historic Site

When we went to Whitman Mission National Historic Site. The name sounded familiar but I could not figure out where I heard it. We first saw the video and as we were watched the video I remembered I was reading a book about the park. It was called the Stout-Hearted Seven. It is an excellent book.

We had to then leave because the museum was closing but we did look around outside. We got to see the Whitman’s house and where they are buried. I learned lots of things but the most disturbing was that Alice Clarissa was Whitmans’ daughter but drowned at the age of 2. I also learned that Dr. Whitman and his wife first traveled West in 1836.  I also learned that the mission had lots of visitors over the years that it was open. If you want to learn more you will have to go there. I had a great time at Whitman Mission.
