2017 Event Schedule - Clearwater

Clearwater was the site of J.R. Mead's 2nd trading post and saloon.

While Clearwater never became a railhead, it saw it's share of cattle and cowboys. The area between the Ninescah River and the Cowskin Creek was often used as a holding area for the herds to allow them to fatten up before being sold.

It was people from the Clearwater trading post that alerted J.R. Mead to a new trail being planned to Ellsworth, prompting the "Four Horsemen" to ride out and intercept the herds and convince them to bring the cattle to Wichita.
