Significant Sites on Emigrant Trails

OCTA works to place interpretive signs at significant sites and remaining graves along the emigrant trails.

Some of these efforts have been catalogued in our popular book, Graves and Sites on the Oregon and California Trails: A Chapter in OCTA's Efforts to Preserve the Trails by Randy Brown and Reg Duffin. The book provides background information about sites, the text of markers placed there, along with valuable directions for reaching each of the sites along with the phone numbers and contact information for the landowners on which the sites sit.
