On May 27, 1806, Sgt. John Ordway and Pvts. Frazer and Weiser were dispatched from Camp Chopunnish (Kamiah) to Lewis' River (Snake River) to obtain salmon. Guided by Nez Perce Indians, the men crossed the Camas Prairie near here. On May 29, at a Salmon River Indian village, Frazer traded an "old razer" to an Indian woman for two Spanish mill dollars. They reached the Snake River after descending "the worst hills we ever saw a road made down." They were welcomed by Nez Perce and purchased a number of salmon.
