ABOUT THE MUSEUM- The Chisholm Trail Museum is located along what was once the greatest cattle trail in the world. The Chisholm Trail Museum represents the history of this cattle trail. The museum also represents the history of early pioneer settlers who homesteaded in Kingfisher, and Kingfisher County after the Land Run of 1889. In addition to the main museum itself, we house the Governor Seay Mansion. This mansion was built in 1892, and was home of the 2nd Territorial Governor of Oklahoma, Abraham Jefferson Seay. Finally, your experience would not be complete without visiting our pioneer village. This unique village is located on our museum grounds. It has the feeling of an early settler town, as 5 original buildings ranging from the late 19th and early 20th centuries were brought in through the years. The pioneer village consists of 2 log cabins, a one room school house, a church, and the first bank building established in Kingfisher. The museum is a wonderful educational experience for any person or family.
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS The Chisholm Trail Museum offers several different educational programs for children of all ages. The museum holds bi-monthly Kid’s Craft programs. Children can make their very own crafts related to specific historical events. The museum also offers a Discovery Quest Program. Children from 1st through 12th grades can come to the museum, upon request, to compete in a scavenger hunt. This scavenger hunt takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Groups will make their way through the museum and pioneer village following clues, learning history along the way. Each clue leads to a different artifact or exhibit along the way, and helps teach participants about Oklahoma History, the Chisholm Trail, the Land Run of 1889, and early pioneer settlers from the area.
