Chisholm Trail Heritage Center closes to the public because of COVID-19 pandemic
DUNCAN, Okla. – We are temporarily closing the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center to the public for the safety and well being of our guests and staff. This change takes place starting Wednesday, March 25. We will update our website and social media as things change.
Earlier this month, we decided to postpone the Center’s new event, Cowboys and Cobbler Throwdown, that was originally scheduled for April 4. We will re-schedule as soon as we can. All public activities, including school tours and field trips, are currently on hold until it is safe to re-open.
For information, contact the Heritage Center at (580) 252-6692. Visit our social media pages, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter while we are closed.
