Welcome to Kingfisher, the gateway to northwest Oklahoma. This growing city has a friendly small town feel where visitors will enjoy a quaint soda fountain, historic mansion and tributes to the “Ambassador of the Plains” Jesse Chisholm.

Start your day with a trip to the Chisholm Trail Museum & Governor Seay Mansion. Discover more about the Oklahoma Land Runs and the Chisholm Trail, as well as Native American artifacts and the history of the Kingfisher College. A frontier village with an 1890 church, 1889 bank, one-room schoolhouse and two log cabins are also located on site. While you’re there, be sure to visit the historic Seay Mansion. Territorial Governor Abraham Jefferson Seay built this three-story mansion in March 1892 with the hopes that Kingfisher would become the capital of Oklahoma Territory.

No visit to Kingfisher would be complete without a visit to Medic Pharmacy where you can enjoy a soda fountain, just like the good old days. Munch on a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads, but be sure to order their signature item - the orangeade. This once-popular drink has now been all but forgotten everywhere but at this small-town gem.
