Location: Chisholm Trail Heritage Center

Start Time: 10:00:00 AM
End Time: 5:00:00 PM

This year is the 20th anniversary of the facility, which is an Outstanding Oklahoma Attraction and True West Top Ten Western Museum.

Website for event information: www.onthechisholmtrail.com

For more Information:
In this upcoming summer exhibit, “Tales of the Trail: 20 Years in Words and Pictures,” May 24-July 4, at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, in Duncan, OK, visitors will get a retrospective look at its first 20 years as seen through the eyes of news reporters, photographers, writers, area youth and staff.
Tales of the Trail will include a curated collection of newspaper clippings, original photographs, books about the Chisholm Trail, published student art and writings and more.
In April 1998, the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center opened its doors and unveiled the highly-anticipated “On the Chisholm Trail Monument” created by Oklahoma sculptor Paul Moore over a two-year labor-intensive process. The opening was attended by dignitaries and hundreds of people and press from throughout the state.
“This exhibit will give many people a chance to relive memories, and for others, a chance to see history that they might not have experienced, or were too young to remember their involvement with the Heritage Center,” said Toni Hopper, Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator, who is also curating the collections for the exhibit. “There are so many wonderful news articles and actual photographs that have been preserved over the years and now we get a chance to show them off in one exhibit. It is quite fascinating to look back and see how much has changed in 20 years.”
At the time, the bronze monument at nearly 35-feet long and 15-feet high, was the largest of its kind in a tribute to the Chisholm Trail. The statue, commissioned by Thomas McCasland Jr., was named in 2014, as a “20 Objects that Shape Oklahoma” in “Oklahoma Magazine.”
Additions in facility and exhibits have expanded what was once a small visitor center into an Oklahoma top attraction, and a top 10 western museum as designated twice by True West Magazine. It also earned a National Day of the Cowboy “Cowboy’s Keeper Award” in 2016. The Heritage Center is also known for its exclusive 4d Experience Theater, featuring the On the Chisholm Trail movie.
Education programs at the Heritage Center attracted more than 10,000 students in 2017. It is the only non-profit to have earned, consecutively, for 11 years, the Great Expectations Model School Certification.
To learn more about the Heritage Center and its history, please visit its website: www.onthechisholmtrail.com The center is open 7 days a week, 10am-5pm Monday-Saturday; 1-5pm Sunday.
