As educators and interpreters, we feel it is important that we teach our future generations how our state was settled and the dramatic effect in had on our country and the world. To understand and experience this historic time period, Wagons West was founded as a place like no other. It is a “living” exhibit with real life interpreters explaining and demonstrating how pioneers lived and survived. This educational hands-on interpretive program is based on the “Frontier Farmers” exhibit which won an international award among Fairs and Expositions in the category of new programs.
