Trails West, Inc., a volunteer non-profit historical organization of Emigrant Trail enthusiasts, initiated a request to place a trail marker in an Ashland park commemorating a 19th century campsite. Through surveys, Trails West identified an Applegate Trail route marker located at the current Ashland Creek Park, 27 E Hersey Street in Ashland. To date, over 700 markers have been placed along 2,000 miles of trail, from southern Idaho, across Nevada, into California and southern Oregon.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 23, at 11:30 a.m. at Ashland Creek Park. The ceremony is open to the public.
