The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center in Enid stands on one of the most famed spots on the Chisholm Trail. This museum celebrates the Cherokee Strip pioneer spirit through engaging exhibits and living history events. A property of the Oklahoma Historical Society, the center focuses on the 1893 Land Run, settlement and the development of northwest Oklahoma through five permanent exhibit galleries.

The Humphrey Heritage Village is a living history village featuring four historically significant buildings, including the only remaining 1893 U.S. Land Office. Visitors to go back in time with a tour of late 1800s and early 1900s state structures. Visit Enid's first Episcopal church, see a historic home with original furnishings and view the one-room Turkey Creek School where area students attended from 1886 to 1947.

Visit the "End of the Day" exhibit to witness a three-dimensional, reproduced camp scene with a covered wagon and other items settlers brought with them. The museum also features beautifully landscaped grounds, including replicas of the Phillips University columns and bronze works by renowned Western artists Harold Holden and Deborah Copenhaver Fellows.
