Welcome 2017!!

From Our Executive Director

Dear Friends:

Welcome to a new year with great news from the National Historic Trails Center Foundation!

Our entrance fee has been waived, so stop in and tour with us today!  There are many exciting things happening for 2017.  We will be upgrading the "brain" of the Trails Center in February and March.  We are working on interactive tablets to give the experience of the good and bad times pioneers faced and will launch in the summer.  We are working on new concepts for our Oregon Trail Gallery as well.  We want to ensure our facility stays world class and give each visitor an experience they won't forget.

There is always something fun and hands happening here at the Trails Center and I cannot wait for you to experience the growth of our nation.

With warm regards,
Aubrey Valdez
Executive Director
