The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community exhibit closes, Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center
November 17, 2018
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center in Enid is pleased to present The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community, on exhibit from September 4 to November 17, 2018, in the J. E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation Gallery. The exhibit focuses on early life and town-building efforts in the Cherokee Outlet just after the 1893 land race—from building houses to developing businesses.
The exhibit will feature oral histories and stories of land run participants on its text panels and through the use of audio recordings. There will be artifacts from different aspects of early life including the land race itself and filing claims, blacksmithing, furniture making, the railroad and the general store.
The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community has been made possible through the generous support of the Day Foundation. The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is located at 507 S. Fourth Street in Enid. For more information, please call 580-237-1907 or visit www.csrhc.org.
