Make your way back in time this weekend to visit the People of the Plains at Old Cowtown Museum.
“Come join us as we celebrate the different groups that populated the plains and helped to shape this area into what it was!
The Great Plains have changed much since settlement pushed west. Over time, many different groups have come and gone, including Native Americans, soldiers, trappers, traders and settlers. Come out for a day where we explore the evolution of the great plains.”
