Hanging paper label is printed with “Chisholm Trail Dust, This famous cattle trail was named after a part Scot and Cherokee Indian, Jesse Chisholm, an Indian trader who laid out this trail in 1867. The trail stretched from Texas through Oklahoma to the Kansas railroads. Over the next 20 years 36,000 cowboys drove five million cattle and one million horses over this trail that stretched over 1,000 miles. This area which is now the town of Yukon, Oklahoma was a half way point and a watering hole for the cattle."
