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 forgotten everywhere but at this small-town gem.
The Chisholm Trail has left a permanent hoof print on the culture and heritage of western Oklahoma. Travel along this famed trail to experience the stories of pioneering cattle drives on a legendary piece of the Old West.
Once twinkling strings of lights brighten up the town, it’s time to look local to knock out holiday shopping lists. From one-day markets to seasonal shelves, shoppers are bound to find some of the most unique goods to gift in Oklahoma.
