Downtown Walla Walla is full of old buildings with original lettering and signage still visible. The Drumheller building is one of them, located on Alder Street, just one block south of Main Street. I tried to research more about this building that is currently used as office space and small businesses, I was fairly unsuccessful. One website said the building was constructed in 1904. Another I found had a photo that claims to have been taken from the top of the "newly constructed" Drumheller Building, looking down South Main Street. That makes me wonder if Alder used to be Main Street before what we now know as Main Street was named such. Anyone know anything more?
