in Walla Walla County and was where United States Supreme Court Justice
William O. Douglas received part of his education. It is the home of
significant vineyards and produces many of America’s apples.

modernize. Additionally, the community, demanded the new building
should compliment existing structures in an award winning-downtown.
Construction of the facility began in May of 2003 and was completed that
September. The 15,984 square foot building was constructed with maximum
security in mind; remote controlled doors, video monitoring and a
collection of other modern security features. It also consolidated the offices
of county government corrections in one place with room to grow.
