Highway 50 Association


A California non-profit organization, formed to educate schoolchildren and preserve the history of the Great Western Migration, triggered by gold discovery in California. Each year, since 1949, when the wagon train first traveled over the Sierras to California in commemoration of the Gold Rush, the re-enactment has continued, including school children and docents who bring to life the struggles of our pioneer forefathers as they migrated West. This volunteer group brings wagons, horses and mules and travels along Highway 50, the busiest route into California during the mid-1800's.
