Event Description

Kauffman Museum at Bethel College in North Newton invites you to grab your cowboy hat and mosey over to “The Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West.” This traveling exhibit celebrates the 150th anniversary of cattle drives that crossed the college campus from 1867 to 1871 en route to beef-hungry easterners. Watch film clips from The Old Chisholm Trail and Red River, listen to the cowboy song “The Old Chisholm Trail,” create your own brand, and pose with life-size steel-formed longhorn cattle. Then search for trail ruts just north of the museum! “The Chisholm Trail” exhibit is a collaboration between Symphony in the Flint Hills and Flint Hills Design in North Newton, with major sponsorship from Lost Trail Soda. Kauffman Museum is open Tues-Fri 9:30-4:30, Sat-Sun 1:30-4:30. Closed Mondays and major holidays. Admission.
