The Oregon Trail Interpretive Center was only 6 miles east of town and open until 6pm. Built high on top of a hill that overlooks the Baker Valley, it has wonderful displays and descriptions of the peoples, their travels and travails as they made their way from Joplin MO along the Oregon Trail. There are even places in the sagebrush below where the remnants of the wagon trails can be seen and walked. It was a great find and we highly recommend it.

Saw the actual Oregon Trail and took pics of the girls on it, one of only a few places that the Trail actually still exists. But to see and hear what our ancestors went through in their quest to come across the U.S. was mind blowing! We could've easily spent another day there, as it was, we spent the better part of the day there and loved it! If you're a history buff in any way, this is a great place to see.

Younger ones (10) were a bit bored until we hiked the trails to the ruts. Their big thrill was walking part of the Oregon Trail.

It was a short, fun, informative walk through the center. The kids liked it and so did we. It's not huge and won't take hours until you do all the trails.
