Chisholm Trail Report

In April of 2014 a Denton County Trail Marking Committee was formed. The Trail Marking Committee was appointed by Beth Stribling, who was at the time Chairperson of the Denton County Historical Commission (DCHC). The committee was formed as a result of interest expressed by Denton County Judge Mary Horn in support of the National Park’s interest in designating the Chisholm Trail (and Great Western Trail) as National Historic Trails. DCHC member Lloyd Webb was appointed as chairman of the Committee, and DCHC members Alan Schiegg and Bob Montgomery would serve as committee members.

The Trail Marking Committee presented their final report to the Denton County Historical Commission on April 2, 2015. Included in the report are interviews, maps, and images of sites in Denton County where the Chisholm Trail once passed through.
