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.

Oklahoma Run of 1889 West Boundary Marker

A stone block marks the western end of the famous Oklahoma land run of 1889. At noon on April 22, 1889, two million acres were opened to settlement. Over 50,000 people scattered all along the border moved in at once, signaled by many guns and cannon fired at many points.

The end line of the Land Rush of 1889 -- and evidently the beginning line of the Land Rush of 1892. And then there was no more land to rush.
