Samuel Frazier built this house which was later extensively remodeled after
his death in 1896. The house was lived in by members of the Frazier
family from 1892-1983. In 1913 it was moved 100 feet to allow for a
through street and once again remodeled to modernize its' appearance.
The results of that renovation are visible in the house we see today.
It is adapted from a simple four-square plan with a pyramidal roof which
features boxed-in rafters and wide overhanging eaves supported by decorative
brackets in the Italianate style. The front entry porch mimics a
classic temple pediment supported on heavy tapered piers, a common feature
of Craftsman style porches popular in 1913. The site is listed on the

and five spacious exhibit halls on 15 acres of parkland. The
Museum’s mission, preserving and sharing Walla Walla regional
heritage, is seen through a collection of more than 42,000
artifacts that tell the many stories of soldiers, pioneers,
and Indian people involved in building a future. From the days
of Lewis & Clark in Wallah
Wallah country through the region’s participation in World War
II, Fort Walla Walla Museum is the repository of “The Cradle
of Northwest History.”
Wallah” is one of the spellings in the journals of Lewis &
Clark naming one group of Indian people they encountered in
what is now Walla Walla County.
