NEXT EVENT: Saturday, September 29, 2018
Noon – 7pm
Our primary annual fundraising event is named for the Shawnee Trail - today’s Preston Road! On this day, the grounds of the Heritage Center will be turned back in time so visitors can watch professional actors stage mock gunfights, take a stage coach ride, watch working blacksmiths, enjoy musical entertainment, armadillo races, a petting zoo, pony rides, and more. Food trucks will temp your tastebuds. Capture the experience at an old time Western photo booth.

Currently featured is the Box Ranch Exhibit. The Box Ranch (now Brinkman) was the location of the pilot episodes of the famous “Dallas” television series. The main house burned in 1986 and has never been restored to its glory. Photos, maps and memorabilia of the Cloyce Box family include a silver studded saddle belonging to Douglass Box and an evening gown belonging to his mother. Learn fascinating insights into the Box family and ranching operation through “Cutter Frisco,” by Douglass Box, available in the Museum Gift Shop. Museum admission charged.
