Iwetemlaykin (pronounced ee weh TEMM lye kinn) State Heritage Site on Wallowa Lake in northeast Oregon will open in October with a public dedication. The date has yet to be finalized. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department has been building a parking lot, restrooms and trails on the former Marr Ranch property, a 62-acre site that will connect by trail at its north end to the city of Joseph and on its south end to Chief Joseph's gravesite.
