Up Close & Personal with Chief Joseph Days Stage Coach (2018)

By Wild Horses

Built-in Concord, New Hampshire, Wallowa County founding father Frank McCully bought the stagecoach in 1886 and ran a stage line from Elgin to Joseph until 1908

Now in its 73rd year, the Chief Joseph Days Rodeo is an indelible northeast Oregon tradition. For most of those years, a red 19th century stagecoach with bright, yellow wheels has been a big part of that tradition.

Traveling through the Grand Ronde River Road, or better known as Rattle Snake Grade, is always an incredible experience regardless of how many times one has taken the journey. Not only does the highway navigate through a steep and unbelievable scenic landscape, but it also depicts parts of the ancient historical Nez Perce territory.

The Walla Walla Frontier Days can trace its roots back to 1866. In 1866, the Walla Walla Agricultural Society staged a large agricultural and industrial exposition to showcase the valley crops and the latest farming methods. The Walla Walla County Fairgrounds and Fair have a storied past ~ a place “where memories are made that last a lifetime”.
