The new Santa Fe Trail exhibit in the new museum building at Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City.

For the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail the Dodge City/Fort Dodge/Cimarron Chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is spotlighting sites along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we are highlighting the new Santa Fe Trail exhibit in the new museum building at Boot Hill Museum in Dodge City. The exhibit has a wonderful freight wagon typical of those used on the trail.  Visit www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information about the trail.
