Description

This brief trail displays several signs with excerpts from members of the Donner Party describing the event in winter 1846-47 that left nearly half of the pioneer party dead. While the various displays offer interesting information on the trials the pioneers faced, the story of the Donner Party has a grisly end, so parents may want to use their discretion.
