Preservation efforts began in 1961 when the Vinita Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy purchased a ten-acre parcel in the core battlefield area. Later that year, the acreage was donated to the Oklahoma Historical Society, which has administered the site. A circle drive loop within the ten acres provides access to monuments and signage telling the story of the site. The Friends of Cabin Creek Battlefield, Inc., a group of dedicated citizens, form a non-profit organization that supports the preservation efforts.
