Montpelier Historic Downtown Walking TourThe streetscape of Montpelier has changed through the years. The early years of this Oregon Trail town began with only horse power including wagons and horseback. Streets were packed dirt with hitching posts. With the advent of the horseless carriage at the turn of the 19th century, Montpelier upgraded the downtown to embrace the popularity of the automotive age. Gone were the days of hitching posts and in their places were street lamps, sidewalks and curbs.
