Using Re-Imagine grant funds, the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center has produced new virtual content that people can experience online. These videos provide the opportunity to join Bethany Nemec, End of the Oregon Trail Interpreter, for an engaging presentation of Oregon Trail history talks.
There are two video options: That Long Looked-For Place: The Oregon Trail Journey can be enjoyed by viewers of any age and is based on the school group presentation with new additional details, facts, and funny stories.
Women of the West: Pioneer Women on the Oregon Trail delves into the unique pioneer experience of women along the Oregon Trail, using quotes from real pioneer diaries to highlight the attitudes, responsibilities, hardships and ingenuity of pioneer women.
These videos contribute to the mission of the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center to preserve the heritage and interpret the history of the Oregon Trail in a way that is authentic, diverse, and inclusive.
