Washita Battlefield National Historic Site

Cheyenne, Oklahoma

 

Construction delays, due primarily to inclement weather, have pushed back the permanent opening of the new visitor center until late May or early June. However, the center will be open temporarily for the ribbon cutting and Old Settlers Reunion activities on April 20 – 21. Museum exhibits will be installed in the late summer or early fall. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for a Grand Opening of the Washita Exhibits on Saturday, November 17, 2007.

Doxey Shale

The distant hills north of Washita Battlefield are called the Horseshoe Hills. These hills were formed as a result of erosion of the softer surrounding material about 250 million years ago, leaving the harder Doxey Shale behind.
