National Park Service Oregon Trail
The National Park Service has identified the Pappan's Ferry crossing in Topeka as a significant site on the historic Oregon-California Trail. Three to four members of NPS' landscape architectural team will be in Topeka the week of Aug. 22-26 to explore ideas for interpretation and development of this historic site. The public is invited to partake in various activities throughout the week including the National Park Service's 100th Birthday! Anyone may also fill out a feedback form to share your thoughts on the park's purpose. See the week's agenda and feedback form here
