Awesome fine.Gave me goose bumps as I seen the sign. Just imagine all these folks leaving their families in the east. Traveling through land no one else ever had. To find their piece of heaven on earth. To be farmers,teachers,Doctors,saloon owners and more.

I love to bring guests here. Most learned about the Chisholm Trail in school and enjoy walking through the park and seeing the round rock (though most are surprised it isn't a sphere). We've gotten some great family photos with the bronze statuary.
