About Chimney Rock Information

Chimney Rock has become one of the most famous landmarks in the American West, largely due to its stop along the Oregon Trail.

This unique formation has come to symbolize the greatest voluntary migration in the history of mankind. The site is jointly-administered by the Nebraska State Historical Society and The National Park Service, which operates the Ethel and Christopher J. Abbot Visitor Center at the Chimney Rock National Historic Site. The Visitor Center features museum exhibits explaining the westward migration of the nineteenth century and the significant role Chimney Rock had in the memories of those who traveled the trails west.
