Event Navigation

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 Honey Springs Battlefield on three Saturdays in June: June 8 ,15, and 29, as well as Saturday, July 6.

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. The students have been trained about the battle and the trails during the class and will work to enhance guest visitors by interpreting key elements of the engagement in the environment where the events occurred.
