DAYTON — Visitors are invited to explore the town of Dayton, Washington, as the town hosts several activities this weekend.

Dayton on Tour offers a glimpse of the historic town with an art walk, the Autumn Art Show at Wenaha Gallery, wagon rides, tours of the Boldman House Museum and the Dayton Historic Depot. The event is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Dayton, which is located approximately 31 miles northeast of Walla Walla, via Highway 12.
