Rooted in history
From our founding in 1869 to today, Baker Boyer’s success has been based on an entrepreneurial approach, always looking for innovative ways to add value to the businesses and communities we serve. Our founder, Dr. Dorsey S. Baker, was the embodiment of this, as a serial entrepreneur and philanthropist here in the Walla Walla Valley. He founded a medical practice, a mercantile, built a railroad, started a steamship company, donated the land where Whitman College resides, and of course, he founded Baker Boyer National Bank.
Rooted in our community
Each one of us at Baker Boyer is deeply committed to the communities we serve. We volunteer our time, lend our expertise, and donate funds to the organizations, programs, and events that make our community strong and vibrant.
