Dickinson County Heritage Center

Learn about Dickinson County’s famous former residents from C.L. Brown, whose telephone company eventually became known as Sprint, to Abilene’s former town Marshal Wild Bill Hickok and Joseph McCoy who brought hundreds of thousands of cattle to Abilene in the 1860s making Abilene into a booming cowtown at the end of the Chisholm Trail.
