Flagstaff Hill - Baker City, Oregon
NOTICE: The National Historic Oregon Trail Center is currently CLOSED for building renovations. Please check with the site for more information on the reopening schedule.
But travelers were also greeted with their first site of the Promised Land beyond. From atop Flagstaff Hill, the Blue Mountains beckoned in the distance, assuring emigrants that their long journey from the Missouri would soon end in the long awaited Willamette Valley.
The Bureau of Land Management operates the interpretive center. Living history programs, life-sized dioramas, an amphitheater, and an interpretive trail system support the center's theme of describing life along the trail.
