|Explorers & Early Settlers Tour||
Time: 10:00 AMto 5:00 PM
Visit the Caldron Linn site located near the Milner Dam, walk the Oregon Trail and Milner Nature Trails, and tour the Rock Creek Station and Stricker Homesite. This tour will provide participants with an overview of the Astorian fur traders, including Wilson Price Hunt and Robert Stuart, who were the first Euroamericans to explore and document southern Idaho. The Astorians established the first permanent American settlements in the Pacific NW and discovered the route that would later become the Oregon Trail. Their adventures (and misadventures) are some of the most exciting, dramatic, and tragic to take place in the history of the Old West. Plan on this tour being a full day and bring a lunch! We will meet at CSI in front of the Security Building and then organize a caravan to Milner.
