From the Bureau of Land Management:

The California Trail Interpretive Center will be open to celebrate the 4th of July Holiday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

At 11 a.m. there will be a reading of the Declaration of Independence, a trail wedding, and readings from emigrant journals about how those traveling on the trail celebrated the holiday. Following at 1p.m., will be a black powder demonstration showcasing a few historic guns, as well as a second reading of the Declaration of Independence and a trail wedding.

Staff and volunteers will add to the Trail experience by dressing in period clothing. Visitors can view a replica of the Independence Rock, so named because it was the site of many 4th of July celebrations and at least a few emigrant weddings that occurred along the California Trail.  Overlanders on the way to California in the mid 1800's, aware they were leaving the United States behind, had no intention of forgetting their heritage and traditions.

The California Trail Interpretive Center, operated by the Bureau of Land Management, is located 8 miles west of Elko, at Hunter exit 292. Visit,, our Facebook page at California Trail Interpretive Center Association or call (775) 738-1849 for more information.
