Ransom Clark Cabin, Walla Walla, Walla Walla County, Washington

Date added: August 8, 2010 Categories: Washington House

Ransom Clark came to this territory in a covered wagon train which followed the Whitman Party, of 1843, and of which Mrs Clark (Lettice J. Millican) was one. The party continuing to California, Ransom Clark turned west to Walla Walla, where he met and married Lettice J. Millican, obtained a grant for 640 acres in 1855; was ordered out of the territory, along with the other settlers, because of Indian troubles, he went to Vancouver and filed his grant there. In 1858 he hired two men, Foster by name, not related to go to Walla Walla to build the cabin. Mrs Clark, as a widow, continued to occupy the cabin after her husbands death; protecting her home and children from the Indians with a shot-gun. She married A. H. Reynolds, who built a frame house moving out of the cabin in 1862.
