Jesse Chisholm Monument Near Site of Hawk Eyes Scene
Here is a monument to the famous frontiersman, Jesse Chisholm, that sits near the site of one of his trading posts on the North Canadian River in present-day west
. To the west of the monument is the Oklahoma City North Canadian River. To the north is , which didn’t exist in Chisholm’s day. To the south is Lake Overholser Northwest 10th street, a busy metropolitan thoroughfare. Just immediately to the east of the monument sits a storage facility and, still further east, people, businesses, and homes. It is on this spot that Hawk Eyes is reunited with Little Doe, a Cherokee Princess, and the great love of his life.
