Did You Know?
200 Years Ago...

Did you know that this past month marked the 200th anniversary of the first organized wagon train west down the Santa Fe Trail? A visit to the City of Gardner and surrounding area is a great way to learn more about this historic occasion--one that undoubtedly shaped development along the western frontier in the early 1800s.

The first of two of the primary visitor destinations are Gardner Junction Park, a small natural area just west of downtown Gardner. The short trail provides interpretive signage outlining what weary travelers would have seen at the diverging point of the California, Oregon and Santa Fe trails.

The second stop, just a few miles west, is the Lanefield Historic Site. Here, a small school & visitor center exist where visitors can learn more about the history of the Santa Fe Trail, the former community and even see the original 1906 DAR Santa Fe Trail marker.
