Walla Walla Community Information

The vibrant city of Walla Walla, which means “Many Rivers” in Native American Indian language, is a picturesque throwback to the boomtowns built with gold in the early 1800s. It is home to many attractions, such as museums, wineries and restored historic landmarks that capture the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition and the fevered gold rush. Located in a lush green valley and watched over by the looming Blue Mountains, Walla Walla was incorporated in1862. It has since undergone a modern renaissance. It is home to an outstanding public school system, three diverse local colleges, numerous shopping malls and parks, and a dazzling array of employers in the food processing, agricultural, irrigation and machine manufacturing industries.

Today, Walla Walla Valley is known as the “banana belt of sunshine and mild temperature,“ enjoying more than 300 days a year of mild, sunny weather. It is completely connected and easily accessed by Interstates 82 and 84 running East and West, and Interstate 9 running North and South. Spokane is a mere 158 miles away to the North and Portland, Oregon, is 262 miles to the Southeast. The Walla Walla airport is located three miles Northeast of the city center.
