What is the Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum?

Chisholm Trail Entrance Sign The Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum is a private historical area that is open to the public. The Museum is operated by Johnson County Heritage Foundation, Inc., an all-volunteer 501 (c) (3) foundation with the exception of the Big Bear Native American Museum. We were incorporated in March 2005 and operate on donations only. 

Our purpose is to educate and restore the rich history of Wardville, the first county seat of Johnson County, and the impact the Chisholm Trail had on this historic site. With the addition of the Big Bear Native American Museum, we now include the impact and history of Native Americans, not only in this area, but in the rest of the nation.
