Transportation development in Oklahoma

Transportation development in Oklahoma goes back to early pioneers who began doing business in Indian Territory long before the land runs started in 1889 or statehood in 1907. The steamboat Heroine was contracted by the U.S. Army to deliver supplies in 1837 to Fort Towson. Starting in 1867, cattle herds were driven across Indian Territory from Texas to stockyards on the Kansas-Pacific Railroad in Abilene, Kan. That became the Chisholm Trail, which is now presented in a new exhibit at the Chisholm Trail Museum in Kingfisher.
