Visitor Tips and News About End Line of 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush
I went here to see the End Line of 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush monument -- and, boy, there is so much more to see! Ask nicely and you may get a tour of the five or more locked buildings full of great artifacts! The buildings include some that are historic that were saved and moved to the site.[Doug Rice, 04/10/2013]
