Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center to Open "The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community" Exhibit
ENID, Okla. - The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center in Enid is pleased to present "The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community," an exhibit running from September 4 to November 17, 2018, in the J. E. and L. E. Mabee Foundation Gallery. The exhibit focuses on early life and town-building efforts in the Cherokee Outlet just after the 1893 Land Race took place - from building houses to developing businesses.
The exhibit will feature oral histories and stories of land run participants on its text panels and through the use of audio recordings. There will be artifacts from different aspects of early life including the land race itself and filing claims, blacksmithing, furniture making, the railroad and the general store.
"The Heritage Center is excited to bring this exhibit to the northwest Oklahoma community," said Aaron Preston, archivist at the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center. "The Heritage Center is always pleased when it can show off artifacts that are not often displayed, particularly those that give a sense of scale, authenticity and perspective to what life was like just after an event that touched as many people as the 1893 Land Race."
"The 1893 Land Race: A Legacy of Community" has been made possible through the generous support of the Day Foundation. The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is located at 507 S. Fourth St. in Enid. For more information, please call 580-237-1907 or visit www.csrhc.org.
