A pioneer scramble into the elements - Weatherford
In 1892 a group of settlers arrived at the western border of Cheyenne and Arapaho Indian county of the Oklahoma Territory to stake their claims on the third Oklahoma land run. As they dashed for their wagons and buggies on April 19th, some ran as fast as they could to whatever area looked best, and that is how Weatherford was born. An area that was unpredictable in weather and the new Oklahomans had to learn new methods of dry land farming and learn to live with tornadoes and thunderstorms.

Weatherford may seem like just another place to pass by as you are going somewhere else along I-40 and to most people it is, but this is really a very nice little community and it's not a bad place to stop and get gas or a bite to eat. It even has several nice little motels if you need a place to spend the night.
To me it was more. It was my home for a few years as I went to Southwestern Oklahoma University.
Weatherford was a good place to go to school. The people are nice, the cost of living is low, the school is very good and there are not a lot of distractions (Lol!)
If you want to see the sites, it won't take long...There is a statue of Astronaught Thomas P. Stafford at one end of town and that's about it... unless you want to take the time to dig into some of the local folklore (Then ask around about Dead Womans Crossing, Ghost Mound or The Corn Batcaves.)
Old Route 66 went right through the heart of town and if that means anything to you, you have to go by and stop at Lucille's Gas Station. Lucille was "The Queen of the Motrher Road" and now although she is gone, the old station is still there.
One warning...if you are driving down old 66 in the driving rain and you see an old man hitch-hiking and you feel a shiver down your back when you see him, don't stop and don't ask.
