Vieux, his wife, and 7 children built a toll bridge that took covered wagons over the Vermillion River. A grave site stands atop the hill near the homestead. Just a few hundred feet farther west is the National Historic Oregon Trail Cholera Cemetery, where a number of people who died during the Oregon Trail days are buried.
