Historical Markers

Caldwell, the Border Queen, has seen wild days as a cow town beside the Chisholm trail, a brief period of booming times during the Oklahoma Land Rush days, and quiet prosperity based on the vast grain fields of Sumner County. Ghostly silhouettes on a hillside south of town give a feeling of the vast herds that moved through here in the nineteenth century.
A rich set of historical markers in downtown Caldwell provides an unusually complete view of the town's past. Stop by the visitors plaza in the Cherokee Strip Center at Main & 1st for a free map and tour guide with the marker locations listed.
