Feel the awe and curiosity the pioneers experienced when they saw the most famous landmark on the Oregon, California, and Mormon Trails.
Designated as a National Historic Site on August 9, 1956, Chimney Rock is maintained and operated by History Nebraska.
See museum exhibits, "pack your wagon" with provisions for the trek west, and learn more about the great migration in a fascinating video at the Ethel and Christopher J. Abbott Visitor Center. Books on trail history, educational games for kids, and unique craft items from the Chimney Rock Gift Shop let you take “a piece of the rock” on your journey.
