Notes
Survey number HAER MT-42
Building/structure dates: 1806 initial construction
Also Nez Perce (Nee Mee Poo) National Historic Trail

National Register Number: 66000437
Significance: The Lewis and Clark Expedition camped at Traveler's Rest while enroute to the Pacific Ocean on September 9-11, 1805, and again during the return trip east on June 30 and July 1-3, 1806. Given the name "Traveler's Rest" by the captains, this strategically situated campsite was a focal point in their momentous exploration of the Bitterroot Range and the northern Rockies. The Lolo Trail is historically significant not only for being traveled by Lewis and Clark, but also because it was used by the eastward-fleeing Nez Perce Indians and pursuing soldiers during the famous Nez Perce War.
