Old Chisholm Trail Crossing Red River
Fleetwood Terral Indian Territory

Looking southeast is Red River station in Texas -- the Chisholm Trail entered there and come out in Indian Territory here at the Fleetwood Community.

Millons of cattle crossed here on their way from Texas to Abilene, Kansas and other points off the Chisholm Trail. The cattle were so thick at times in the river crossing that a cowboy could walk across the river on their backs.

Northwest of the site on the I. C. McGinnis land in a branch of Fleetwood Creek are wagon wheel ruts in sandstone that are very destinct today.
