Long Description:
I highly recommend a visit to the Washington Irving Trail Museum located south of Stillwater, OK. It's a treasure!

Near here, in 1832, Washington Irving hunted wild horses, an exciting event described in his book on his Oklahoma tour as "Ringing the Wild Horse." In party were H.L. Ellsworth, U.S. Comm., Chas. J. Latrobe, English writer, and Swiss Count, Albert Day Portales.
