The Chisholm Trail, celebrating its 150thanniversary in 2017, played a significant role in creating towns in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas after the Civil War.
Many believe that without the cattle drive, Wichita might not have developed into the thriving city it is today. 2017 brings many fun opportunities to learn about the trail and its significance to Wichita. Cowboy music, Chisholm Trail Camp-ins, book club readings, or even drinking a sarsaparilla with a cowboy in the saloon at Cowtown, are all ways you can celebrate this big milestone in Wichita, Kansas. Come celebrate “The Year of the Chisholm Trail” in Wichita!
