Three cattle trails crossed the Red River during the 19th century: the Shawnee, the
Chisholm, and the Great Western. While purists continue to argue the names for the
trails and some parts of their routes, they are nonetheless an integral part of the Red
River's history.

Mosey on up with the Red River Historian as we explore some of the history and
places where you can enjoy your own historic road trip!
