“Teaching the colorful history of Sunny Valley”

The Applegate Interpretive Center offers a glimpse into the colorful history of this rugged area through the stories of the pioneer settlers, the naming of Grave Creek, the discovery of gold, the impact of the stage line, and the building of the railroad. Located in Beautiful Sunny Valley, The Applegate Trail Interpretive Center is a "must see." Enjoy visiting the many historical displays! In the fall of 1846, the first emigrant wagon trail from Fort Hall, Idaho, to travel the southern route of the Oregon Trail--known as the Applegate Trail--camped just across the creek from here. Martha Leland Crowley, 16 years old, died of  Typhoid Fever during this encampment and was buried on the north side of what was to become known as "Grave Creek" Visit our Fireside Theatre to see this dramatic reenactment of the event!
