The campers were being built in a large building on the east side of the road as you entered Duvall. I wonder if anybody there recalls the name of these campers? PLEASE DM us if you have an idea!! Thank you.

Speaker: Lorraine McConaghy, MOHAI Public Historian
This territory, so distant from “back East,” participated fully in the Civil War though
no battles were fought here. From issues of race and slavery, secession and
widespread resignations, treason and press suppression, Washington Territorial
settlers held strong opinions during the antebellum, wartime, and Reconstruction
periods.
