Traveling with Lewis & Clark

Discovery Trunk: A three-by-two-foot Ponderosa pine trunk with leather and brass straps was made by John Fisher, an Idaho educator, historian and scientists. The Botetourt County Historical Museum has obtained 1 of 12 faithfully reproduced trunks to be used for educational purposes. The trunk is portable and handcrafted after the ones carried by the Corps of Discovery during the Lewis & Clark Expedition to the Pacific Northwest and back. Fisher filled each trunk with items that were carried back to Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and Washington, DC
