Keeney Pass Interpretive Site


Keeney Pass was named for the pioneer trapper and trader Jonathan Keeney. In 1831, at the age of 19, Keeney left Missouri to explore the Rocky Mountains. He joined Jim Bridger of the American Fur Company and trapped and traded throughout the west. Jonathan eventually returned to Missouri, got married, and started a family. In 1846, he brought his family west, serving as a guide to the wagons that accompanied them. In the following years, Keeney was also a gold seeker and a cattle drover. In 1863, he established a ferry along the Snake River just above the site were Fort Boise stood, and settled near present-day Vale, Oregon.
