Get Involved

The biennial Taste of the Trail event has been the major source of revenue for the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum’s operating budget and your generous participation in this fundraiser is greatly appreciated for our continued success. Recently awarded the John L. Nau, III Award of Excellence in Museums by the Texas Historical Commission, CTHM wishes to extend our sincere thanks for your support of our achievements in the areas of historical interpretation, museum education, conservation of collections and community involvement.

Los Vaqueros, forerunners of the Texas cowboy, had a great influence on the cowboys driving cattle “up the trail,” so the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum has chose this theme to recognize the long-established Vaquero traditions and legacies at the Taste of the Trail VIII fundraising event. We hope that you will join in honoring this rich history and support for the Museum by contributing at the level of your choice.
