wagontr.JPG (15538 bytes) This authentic covered wagon depicts the story of the wagon trail and it's despair, determination and discovery.
In the fall of 1846, the first emigrant wagon trail from Fort Hall, Idaho, to travel the southern route of the Oregon Trail--known as the Applegate Trail--camped just across the creek from here. Martha Leland Crowley, 16 years old, died of  Typhoid Fever during this encampment and was buried on the north side of what was to become known as "Grave Creek"
Visit our Fireside Theatre to see this dramatic reenactment of the event!
