“fascinating and historic Chisholm Trail”
The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center, located in Duncan, is a multi-sensory submersion into not only the fascinating and historic Chisholm Trail, but also the settlement of the southern Great Plains of the United States. The exhibits encourage you to explore, push buttons, pick up a lasso or put on a cowboy hat. Toss a rope around a Longhorn steer, ride a bucking bronco, create your own brand or sit a spell near the campfire and listen to Jesse Chisholm as he offers advice to a young cowboy on his first cattle drive. In the multi-sensory Experience Theater, visitors will smell the wildflowers of a springtime Oklahoma prairie, listen to the thundering hooves of a cattle stampede and feel the wind and rain on your face as a storm rages. A surprise awaits you when you walk into the Garis Gallery of the American West, as the intimate setting opens to an exceptional collection of Western paintings and sculptures. The nearly $2 million art collection includes works by Frederick Remington, George Catlin, Charles Russell, Alan Houser and regional and local artists of note on display in the permanent collection. At the entrance to this center is the world's longest miniature Chisholm Trail Walkway that guides visitors on a historical journey from Kansas to Texas. Along the way, you will view the On the Trail Monument, a grand statue dedicated to the legendary American cowboys who drove cattle up the Chisholm Trail. Groups are invited to reserve a tour of nearby ruts left behind by wagon wheels and cattle herds traveling the trail. Ruts are on private property, require a short hike and tours must be reserved in advance by calling the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center.
