Where history lives!

National Historical Trails Interpretive Center

The National Historic Trails Center provides visitors with valuable and interesting information about the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony-Express Trails. When visiting the center, guests can explore the various exhibits or attend one of the programs to learn more about the history of these emigrant trails. Trails Center staff and the Foundation take great pride in each and every exhibit featured at the center and focus on providing accurate historical information to help further enhance understanding of Western history.

We welcome visitors of all ages to the center – whether you’re a school group, family, couple or individual. Call us today for more information at 307-265-8030.


  2020 Volunteer Appreciation Lunch
We celebrated some of the many fine folks who volunteer their time here at the Trails Center on Saturday, September 12th outside on a beautiful end of summer day! A feast from HQ BBQ and cupcakes made with love by Jean Smart at Ridley's bakery filled our bellies. Come volunteer with us!
