One of the most interesting exhibits at this Coldwater museum is the Comanche Cattle Pool, the largest cattle pool in Kansas. A group of cattlemen combined their herds to form the largest cattle ranch ever established in Kansas. By 1884 the Comanche Cattle Pool contained 84,000 cattle and covered about 4,000 square miles. It dissolved in 1885 due to a terrible blizzard and to the advent of new fencing laws.
