The Chisholm Trail:
Driving the American West

The Chisholm Trail fundamentally changed the American West. From the birth of the cowboy as icon to the revival of the cattle industry, the Old Chisholm Trail helped shape our popular culture by altering how we thought of the American West and the individuals who lived there.
This traveling exhibit, a collaboration between Symphony in the Flint Hills and Flint Hills Design with major sponsorship from Lost Trail Soda, invites visitors of all ages to explore the Chisholm Trail from its inception in the 1860s to today.
