Event Navigation

Honey Springs Battlefield is pleased to announce a unique tour opportunity at the site. Students from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) will serve as tour guides on the six trails that cross the 1,100-acre battlefield on Saturday, June 25, as well as three Saturdays in July: July 2, 16 and 23. This series of tours coincides with the annual memorial of the battle on July 16 at 10:30 a.m. The students will point out the exact locations of military actions, highlight key aspects of the engagement, and discuss its historical importance.

Normally, the park and its six trails are self-guided with a total of 55 trail markers. Through a special historical interpretation course taught by Dr. James Finck at USAO, students will travel approximately three hours from their classroom in Chickasha to serve as tour guides at Honey Springs Battlefield. Already trained about the battle and the trails during the class, these students will add to the overall visitor experience by interpreting key elements of the engagement in the environment where the events occurred.
