ENID, Oklahoma -- The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center brings to life the struggles and successes of early Oklahoma settlers. The museum gives visitors a clear timeline of how Enid came to be the city it is today.

"You know, they were coming here not just to make a living. They were coming here to make a life," said Heritage Center Director Andi Holland. "And this is what they saw as their last chance to have a place of their own."

Visitors follow the discovery of natural oil and gas, the development of railways and highways, and the increasing importance of Enid as a center of culture and commerce.

The center also features the Humphrey Heritage Village, a collection of four historic buildings restored to their original glory. Part of the center's mission is to inspire the pioneers of future generations.
