Kansas Historical Marker

Caldwell And The Chisholm Trail

Kansas State Historical Marker
Sumner County
      A mile southeast of this marker the Chisholm Trail entered Kansas. It took its name from Jesse Chisholm, an Indian trader, whose route lay between the North Canadian River and present Wichita. In 1867 it was extended from the Red River to Abilene when the building of the Union Pacific gave Texas cattle an Eastern market.
