Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
February 27 by PHILLIP R EARLES
some years ago was there. beautiful place have traveled to many places of historical interest and this was one of the most well kept place that i have visited. besides being part of the Corps of Discovery, it was site a number of treaties signed between the USA and different Indians, so it has more than one interest of our American heritage
