The web cam at the Big Hole battlefield is attached to the visitor center and looks northeast across the battlefield. Dominating the background is Battle Mountain. On the slopes of this hill, the Nez Perce kept their horses.
On the flat at the base of Battle Mountain is the north fork of the Big Hole River. If you look off to the right, you can see the tipi poles that mark and memorialize the village site that was attacked by Colonel John Gibbon early on the morning of August 9, 1877.
Nez Perce National Historical Park Web Cam - Spalding Site
The park's main visitor center sit's on a hill overlooking the Clearwater River. In the Nez Perce language, this place is called ?iyíwewiy. In English we call it the Spalding site. It was at this location that Henry Spalding set up his mission in the 1830s. Enjoy!
