We are a Bureau of Land Management interpretive center focusing on the California Trail experience and its global impacts from 1841-1869.
We have researched dioramas and interactive exhibits that immerse the visitor in the trail experience. We feature costumed interpretations and demonstrations of daily life for both Native Americans and pioneers. We feature a reconstructed Shoshone village and wagon encampment.
We have a partnership with the non-profit Southern Nevada Conservancy. We sell books, children’s gifts, apparel, candy, and other miscellaneous Trail related items.
