The Chisholm Trail Bookstore

The Chisholm Trail Bookstore
Duncan, OK 73534

This is the front of the bookstore showing the middle glass plate; there two plate glass windows surrounding it. The bookstore is part of a large building in which there are separate offices, organizations, and businesses. Originally a car dealership, it was remodeled somewhere around 1975, I would guess, to the current structure. Approximately fifteen various organizations or business share this building, each as a separate and distinct unit with a separate entrance; it is rather like a mall in some respects.

The bookstore has been in business since 1995, and houses about 7,500 volumes in 1,000 square feet. Hours are mostly by appointment and quite flexible. Specialties are technical texts, university press books, regional Oklahoma and Western Americana books, and art catalogues. Numerous limited editions, first editions, and signed editions are available for purchase. A dedicated effort is made to locate books which are interesting and informative, presenting something of cultural or historical value to the reader.
