History: 

A couple of the early Volga German groups to arrive in the Pacific Northwest traveled through Walla Walla in 1882 enroute to their settlement areas in Adams and Whitman Counties in the Palouse Country of Eastern Washington.

Those who stayed in Walla Walla came primarily from Walter, Walter Khutor, and Hussenbach. Around the turn of the century, settlers from Kautz began arriving in large numbers.

Today, the descendants of many Volga German families live in and around Walla Walla.
