Carpenter, photographer, merchant, lawman, express messenger, steamship company agent, merchants’ agent, surveyor, road builder, politician, government employee, miner. Lewis H. Day worked at all these occupations during his time in the Northwest between 1850 and 1877. While operating a photography business in Walla Walla for only a short time, he made a significant impact on the area in other ways. Join us as we journey through this quarter century of Northwest history with on of the early movers and shakers of the area.

Lewis Henry Day is portrayed by Al Cummins.
