Fantastic Find Update: California Trail Interpretive Center

Apparently this is a "Westward Ho!" day because I've just found another resource for those of us trying to better understand their ancestors' experiences on their way to the West. It's the California Trail Interpretive Center in Elko, Nevada, which was established in 2009.

Here's what they have to say about themselves:
"We are a Bureau of Land Management interpretive center focusing on the California Trail experience and its global impacts from 1841-1869. 
We have researched dioramas and interactive exhibits that immerse the visitor in the trail experience. We feature costumed interpretations and demonstrations of daily life for both Native Americans and pioneers. We feature a reconstructed Shoshone village and wagon encampment."
Sounds like a great place to visit.
