Stubblefield Home Sign Dedication

Walla Walla 2020 invites you to a dedication ceremony for its new Stubblefield Home interpretive sign on Monday, Feb. 12, at 2 pm in the Fireside Room of the First Assembly of God at 1919 Fern.

The event will begin with talks regarding the history of the property as the home of W.W. Baker, president of Baker Boyer Bank, and later as a refuge for widows and homeless youth, as well as a residential agricultural project of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal.  The talks will be followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new interpretive sign along Fern, and a walking tour to the top of the hill where the Home was located on 40-acre grounds.

Those who remember the Stubblefield Home and its history will be invited to share their recollections, along with Whitman College historian David Schmitz, Children’s Home Society of Washington’s program manager for Walla Walla, Meagan Anderson, and members of the Stubblefield family and the Stubblefield Trust.

More information on the Stubblefield Home is available here.

Please note that the Fireside Room is at the northeast corner of the church with windows facing the hill to the north where the Stubblefield Home was located; a walkway leads to the left of the church from the parking lot to the room.
