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.

  New Scrim in the Mormon Handcart Cold Room Theater
The scrim in the Cold Room theater of the Mormon Handcart Gallery was vandalized and in need of repair. The Foundation ordered new material, and Carol Thorup volunteered to sew the hems and pockets to make this piece ready for installation. Installation is COMPLETE! It looks wonderful! Maintenance is an important part of keeping world class exhibits ready for our visitors! Many THANKS to Jared Fleming who maintains this facility and Lance & Carol Thorup who generously donate their time!
