I just wanted to let you all know that thanks to the support of reenactors, historians and concerned citizens The End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center has received a stipend from the city which has allowed it to reopen. There is an ongoing battle to receive regular funding, but we have the rest of the year to prove the importance of the site to the local community and things are looking good.
The city received calls from as far away as Germany and France and had tourists from both countries write letters of disappointment over finding the site closed when they came to visit. You can bet that this caught the attention of city officials.
So, thank you, thank you, thank you for your calls, emails, and letters. They really made a difference.
