October 7, 2017 the Frenchtown Historic Foundation will host the 2017 Frenchtown Rendezvous in Walla Walla, Washington that will feature hands-on family history workshop.

Similar to the stories from French Prairie here in the Willamette Valley, the Frenchtown Historic site looks at the French-Canadian  voyageurs with the Hudson’s Bay Company and their Métis families that settled in the Walla Walla Valley starting in the 1820s.
