Exploring the Oregon Trail

Bob Hill And The End Of The Oregon Trail

If you're a millennial, or, like me, one year away so you get to duck that particular moniker, chances are you grew up playing The Oregon Trail game. Parenthetically, you can play the game too on our website. But for some people, their connection is a bit deeper. Bob Hill is a volunteer with the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Oregon City. His passion for history is in his genes...literally. Bob's great-grandfather was one of the many thousands who came to Oregon via the 2,000-mile trail. That connection makes him a popular living history character at the interpretive center, as he helps kids learn about this piece of history in a fun and engaging way. 

You can listen to our latest podcast during which we talk about history with Bob on Soundcloud, or pick it up on iTunes, Google Play or Spotify. Be sure to hit that subscribe button so you don't miss one!
