In a year-long celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, the City of Marion along with the Historic Elgin Hotel will host an exhibit “The Chisholm Trail: Driving the American West” from May 30th thru July 24th. The exhibit will be on display in the ballroom at the Historic Elgin Hotel from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 30th thru July 24th and is free of charge. Chisholm Trail memorabilia is available for purchase.
Sponsored by the Symphony in the Flint Hills and Lost Trail Root Beer, the story of the Chisholm Trail is told through the eyes of Flint Hills Design, Inc., who has incorporated wood, metal, and leather items commonly associated with the time period. Highlights include an interactive musical exploration along with video and audio clips of movies and songs that reference the Chisholm Trail, and artistically rendered, life-size longhorn cattle.
