Robidoux Pass was a significant landmark on the Oregon Trail. In 1848, an Indian trader named Robidoux established a trading post near this natural landmark on the old Oregon Trail. In 1850, a shorter route was opened through Mitchell Pass, just south of the monument itself and much closer to the Platte River and eliminated the eight-mile swing south.
Type: National Historic Site
In 1828, a fur trapper by the name of Hiram Scott was wounded and deserted by his companions. He gained a certain immortality by making his way to a magnificent formation of bluffs along the North Platte River before succumbing to his wounds. It was for Hiram Scott that Scotts Bluff National Monument, Scotts Bluff County, and the city of Scottsbluff have been named.
Type: National Monument
Located on the Oregon Trail, the Legacy of the Plains Museum features an impressive collection of pioneer and early community artifacts, antique tractors, and farm implements; an 80-acre working farm; historic farmstead structures; and striking views of Scotts Bluff National Monument. Come live the timeless stories of the Nebraska prairie.
Just off Highway 26 east of Scottsbluff sits a shaded grave, surrounded by protective green trees. You might wonder the story of that gravesite. Who is in it? Why is it so significant? An educational historical marker will tell you that the grave belongs to Rebecca Winters, one of the few people to be buried in a marked grave along the Mormon Trail.
Riverside Discovery Center - Riverside’s 22 acre zoo features a diverse collection of both native and exotic wildlife exhibits providing an up close encounter in a lush park setting in Scottsbluff.

Victory Hill Farm is a small family-owned and operated Grade A Goat Dairy Farm and cheesemaking operation in western Nebraska. Our mission is to grow, produce and sell locally the finest earth-friendly farm products, specializing in farmstead artisan goat cheese. These fresh and aged cheeses are handmade in small quantities using only milk from the herd of goats located on this farm.
A monument on the left to Pony Express riders and a marker on the right identifying Fort Mitchell’s northwest corner sit to the west of the intersection of Highway 92 and Hunt Dairy Road. Mitchell Pass and the City of Mitchell derive their names from the cavalry-era fort, built in 1864. Today, no trace of the fort remains.

Agate Fossil Beds and its surrounding prairie are preserved in a 3,000-acre national monument. Once part of “Captain” James H. Cook’s Agate Springs Ranch, the nearby beds are an important source for 19.2 million year-old Miocene epoch mammal fossils. Cook’s ranch also became a gathering place for Chief Red Cloud and other Oglala Lakota (Sioux) Indian people.
