From I-84, take exit 213 and follow Oregon Trail signs to First Street and Frazier.

Emigrants were happy to camp in the rich, well-watered Umatilla Valley. From here, many traveled north to the Whitman Mission, where they could buy provisions and implements. The Cayuse, Umatilla, and Walla Walla Indians living here were eager to trade, too—supplying the emigrants’ food stores and competing directly with the itinerant traders and missionaries.
