Quanah Parker Exhibit Now Open to the Public



Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker are two important names in U.S. frontier history.  Much can be learned from the dramatic story of these two courageous individuals.  In 1836, a Comanche raiding party took Cynthia Ann from her family.  Over the following years, she became wife to a Comanche chief and mother.  After Cynthia Ann was taken back by Texas Rangers, Quanah became one of the most important Comanche leaders both in war and peace.

The photo exhibit tells this story of the lives of these two persons caught between two different worlds.  The Lakes Trail region views this traveling exhibit as a way to educate visitors about their lives.
