Nez Perce National Historical Park
Today those events are commemorated by the 1,170-mile Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) National Historic Trail.
Together, the park and the trail tell the story of an encounter between two strong nations, from the 1805 meeting with Louis and Clark, to the conflicts that led to the 1877 war, to the divisions in healing process is going on today. They provide opportunities to view our shared history of this landscape through a different lens.
Erected by National Park Service.
