Today, this historic icon is now an intriguing museum where you can step back in time and learn all about the history of the house, the people who lived there AND what life was like over 100 years ago!
Early Walla Walla and the Kirkman family story are showcased through permanent and temporary exhibits and events with period artefacts and heirlooms adding to the atmosphere.
Kids, what do you think life would have been like from the 1970s to early 1900s?
