KINGFISHER — On April 15 and 16 Chisholm Trail Museum, 605 Zellers Ave., in Kingfisher, is having a living history event. Friday is reserved for schools, and teachers can make reservations by contacting the museum. Saturday’s events are open to the public.

“We have 25 encampments of re-enactors. We have gunfights and civil war soldiers. We will have pioneers, rope-making, a chuck wagon, an old-time magician and Annie Oakley doing shooting tricks. We will have games for the young ones. We have a washer woman, she is amazing. Kids stand in line to wash a sock, put it through the wringer and hang it on the line with a clothes pin. It is a fun and educational day,” said Ginger Murphy, historical interpreter.
