      Description:
      Soon after the first European ship reached these shores, emigrants from the early settlements on the east coast began exploring the vast lands to the west. Some sought a haven from religious persecution, some looked for better agricultural lands, some sought quick wealth. Whatever the reason, emigrants believed that they could improve their lives by moving West. Many people longed to see the West, even if they didn't want to settle there. Nearly three hundred years of writings by travelers, politicians, explorers, emigrants, and adventurers still lure people west as tourists or seekers of a new life.

      Cost: Free and Open to the Public
