You Can Still Visit Landmarks From The Oregon Trail Right Here In Wyoming
From 1836 through the late 1890s, nearly half a million people gathered up as part of wagon trails to head out from the Midwest to get to the Pacific Coast. These travelers used established trails – the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trail – that all made their way through Wyoming! Many of us have a family history that dates back to those who traveled the Oregon Trail in Wyoming, and you can visit plenty of sites in the state to see the evidence from this huge migration.
