Chimney Rock National Historic Site, NE

Chimney Rock National Historic Site is located in western Nebraska. It was a recognizable landmark on the Oregon Trail. The location has a new visitors center that was completed in 1994 and is run by the state of Nebraska. Although the site is a federal one, they do not maintain it or provide anything other than a tiny pamphlet. Cost to see the film and visit the museum is $3 per person (2006). We chose to do the “free” thing and just take photos.
