Fur Trade History of the North Platte River Valley

Sunday, February 24, 2019 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Chimney Rock National Historic Site

Join us at Chimney Rock for another installment in our 2019 Sunday Afternoons at The Rock series.

While the North Platte River valley was used as a travel corridor for the famed Oregon Trail, it was also a travel route for many others throughout history as well. One group that relied heavily on the shallow waters of the North Platte were the mountain men. 

Come join us for Cody Assman's talk focusing on how mountain men used the North Platte, their experiences while traveling along it, and their thoughts of the place we call home.
