The Chisholm Trail Heritage Center will present a photographic exhibit, “Smoke Over Oklahoma: The Railroad Photographs of Preston George,” July 6, 2018 - Sept. 3, 2018.
Numerous railroad lines traversed through Oklahoma - including the Frisco, the Katy and heavy duty locomotives from the Kansas City Southern and Santa Fe lines.
Duncan's history is also deeply connected to the railroad industry, and with a local railroad organization and the Rock Island 905 Historical Museum, CTHC's Executive Director Stacy Cramer Moore thought the exhibit would be a good fit for its patrons. Plans are to include some interactive elements that will delight all ages.
Images to be featured in this exhibit are included in a book of the same title, by author Augustus J. Veenendaal Jr.
Museum admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors ages 55 and over, $4 for students and free for children ages five and under. Admission includes access to all permanent and temporary exhibits, as well as both theaters.
The mission of the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center is "To celebrate and perpetuate the history, art and culture of the Chisholm Trail, the American Cowboy and the American West."
