National Historical Trails Interpretive Center

The National Historic Trails Center has been providing visitors with valuable and interesting information regarding the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony-Express Trails for over a decade. When you visit the center, you can explore our various exhibits or attend one of our programs to learn more about the history of these trails. We take great pride in each and every exhibit featured at the center and focus on providing accurate, real-life historical information to help further enhance your understanding of these influential pieces 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.
