Just slightly northwest of Oklahoma City you will find Kingfisher. Settled as part of the Land Run, Kingfisher has a rich history. The city was located right on the Chisholm Trail, where millions of cows were driven from Texas to Kansas. You can learn all about this fascinating time in America’s history at the Chisholm Trail Museum. The museum features one-of-a-kind artifacts from that time period including Native American, farm and pioneer implements. While you’re visiting, check out the 89er Theater. Once a Masonic Temple, this century-old Main Street building has since been resurrected as a movie theater.
A few other interesting tidbits about Kingfisher, Walmart founder Sam Walton was born there in 1918 and the Coleman Company (think camping gear and sports equipment) was founded there in 1900.
