Chisholm trail

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm trail on Saturday.
 
The trail served as a trade route in the 1800s and helped drive thousands of heads of cattle as far as Kansas.
 
The museum had everything from a singing cowboy, arts and crafts and a look back at the special history of South Texas.
 
The trail, by the way, is named after Jessie Chisholm, a Cherokee fur trader.
