Whitman Mission National Historic Site -- The Learning Place

offers a teaching guide about the mission of Marcus and Narcissa Whitman at Waiilatpu, an important way station in the early days of the Oregon Trail. The Whitmans labored to bring Christianity to the Cayuse, but deep cultural differences and a measles epidemic led to violence in which the Cayuse killed the Whitmans and 11 others in November, 1847. The park preserves the site of Whitman's buildings and Mill Pond, a short segment of the Oregon Trail, and the grave where the victims are buried. (National Park Service)
