The Oregon Trail was one of the key overland migration routes on which pioneers traveled across the North American continent on foot, horseback or in wagons in order to settle new parts of the United States during the 19th century. The Trail spanned over half the continent, measuring 2,170 miles west through territories and land later to become six U.S. states (Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon). It's heyday was from 1841 to 1869. Once the first transcontinental railroad was completed in 1869, the use of this trail by long distance travelers diminished as the railroad slowly replaced it.
Estimated Value $500 - 575.

Realized $546
