    Walla Walla is an Indian name which means many waters or running waters and this beautiful valley with the range of The Blue Mountains as a backdrop is full of small streams and springs.   It was one of the original counties formed as part of the Washington Territory in 1853. In those days it included all the area east of the Cascade Mountains to the western portion of Montana. The Walla Walla Valley is famous for it's Walla Walla Sweet Onions, Wheat production, Hot Air Balloon Stampede, Southeastern Washington Fair and Frontier Days Rodeo, Washington State Penitentiary, and recently their many vineyards and wine production.
