At the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City
A fun fall day at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, in Baker City Oregon exploring the Oregon Trail, pioneer and gold rush history. The Center currently open with new Covid 19 precautions in place including social distancing and mask requirements, and redesigned interpretive experiences.
The National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center sits high atop Flagstaff Hill outside Baker City Oregon, overlooking the ruts of the Oregon Trail still visible today in the Baker valley below. Located along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, an outdoor wagon encampment is the first sights visitors see when they arrive at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. Other outdoor exhibits include a gold panning exhibit, a recreated Lode Mine, a historic stamp mill, and an operating blacksmith shop.
Costumed narrators from the BLM staff and Trail Tenders volunteer group provide interpretation and narration for the exhibits and activities throughout the center.
