CHEYENNE, Oklahoma: Washita Battlefield National Historic Site is hosting a free Tea Party & Quilt Reveal on January 9th, 2018 from 12:30 pm to 3:00 p.m. at the Cheyenne Senior Citizens Center. All are invited to attend the free ‘come and go’ High Tea to view the finished anniversary quilt.


The National Park Service (NPS) Rangers will be serving High Tea with various goodies and teas to celebrate the completion of a specially created Anniversary Quilt in honor of the Battle of the Washita’s 150th commemoration in 2018. Over the past several months, Volunteers-in-Park, the Crawford Ladyfingers, and NPS staff shared countless days in the visitor center gallery quilting the unique anniversary quilt and sharing their knowledge of the quilting craft with visitors from around the world. Their efforts will be continually shared with the community as the quilt travels to numerous locations in Oklahoma throughout the year.
