Bob Hill And The End Of The Oregon Trail

If you're a millennial, chances are you grew up playing The Oregon Trail game. But for some people, their connection is a bit deeper. Bob Hill is a volunteer with the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive & Visitor Information 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. This 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.
