The National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center portrays and interprets the Oregon Trail experience and its related themes, while preserving and protecting its historic and cultural heritage.  Administrated by the Bureau of Land Management, the Interpretive Center offers living history demonstrations, interpretive programs, exhibits, multi-media presentations, special events, and more than four miles of interpretive trails to tell the stories of Oregon Trail pioneers, explorers, Native Americans, miners and settlers of the frontier west. 

The Interpretive Center is located on the Oregon National Historic Trail, and cultural features include wagon ruts from Oregon Trail migrations of the mid-19th century, and buildings and workings of a historic gold mine dating to the 1890s. ​
