Watch out in the tepee for the big spider, but the wildlife is amazing. Flowers, bugs, trees, raccoon tracks, and more! The museum is wonderful. It's a great visit.

Except for the Indian museum, this is a free-fee area. Open on weekends and good weather, you can walk back in time to the time of stage coaches, one-room school houses, jails with sheriffs, and blacksmiths. This is an outdoor facility where you walk and...More

These guys have put together a terrific museum and tourist stop on the Chisholm Trail. The American Indian artifacts are priceless and the layout is put together as well as any larger institution. Often there are living history docents in the 'village' and we were...More
