|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".
