In 1856, US Cavalry established a new Fort Walla Walla about 20 miles east of the original river, where the city is now presently located. For several years in the late 1800’s, it remained the largest town west of Minneapolis and north of San Francisco. Walla Walla is presently a small city with a population of 34,000.
