Sundays at The Rock: The Great Platte River Road
Join us at Chimney Rock for another installment in our 2019 Sunday Afternoons at The Rock series.
The Platte’s broad gentle ﬂoodplain made it a natural route for wagons to cross the continent. Once the need for wagon roads passed, this natural travel corridor remained an important way to cross America.
Chimney Rock Historian Loren Pospisil will show how trails turned to rails turned to roads. In many ways, the Oregon, Mormon and California trails are still alive.
