The Chisholm Trail fundamentally changed the American West, from the beginnings of the cattle industry to the birth of the American Cowboy.
Learn about the founding fathers, Jesse Chisholm and Joseph McCoy. Discover how the cowboy became a folk hero through stories, songs, and film clips. While we might not be able to pinpoint the trail's actual beginning and ending places, historic maps can illustrate how it changed and shifted over time.
This traveling exhibit is a collaboration between Symphony in the Flint Hills and Flint Hills Design with major sponsorship from Lost Trail Soda.
