IF WE HAD TO LIVE IN OKLAHOMA, WE WOULD PROBABLY PICK EDMOND.
This is the first building constructed in Oklahoma Territory for the purposes of higher education. Known then as the Territorial Normal School, its classes first assembled in a nearby Methodist church before this building rose on its present site in January 1893. This National Historic Site remains Edmond's most impressive historic building, and...more
For what amounts to a state college regarded by the populace as a glorified community college, most of the students at the University of Central Oklahoma come from the surrounding metropolitan area. Inexpensive, and thus highly sought after by budget-conscious families, its campus cannot properly be regarded as beautiful, but some of the buildings...more

Just minutes away from any of the hotels in Edmond. The interior is extremely well done high-tech with natural woods. Spacious seating, attentive friendly servers and some of the best barbeque in the OKC area. You will NOT be disappointed. Earl has posted this sign: "If you can find better barbecue, eat it!"
Favorite Dish: My favorite plate is the sliced brisket dinner with cole slaw and beans. The cole slaw is made fresh every day and the beans are out of this world. They have a good variety of domestic beers and I would suggest that a Coor's Lite goes well with dinner. If you like hamburgers, you will love Earl's hamburger. Charcoal broiled half-pound patty is to die for.
THESE TWO towers are the Edmond water towers. The short one advertises a PGA tournament held here. But what is going on with the tall tower? Any Edmond natives who can explain?
Edmond's most impressive church building and possibly its largest is the out-of-the-way First Presbyterian Church near the middle school. Its green spire, possibly higher than the white arrangement at First Christian, is unfortunately shrouded by a host of oaks that crowd its discreet location. A simple glance reveals the enormity of the church and...more
Aside the University of Central Oklahoma campus towers Edmond's most impressive steeple, but by no means its most impressive church. The First Christian Church commands a corner location on arguably Edmond's most traveled road, and owing to this fact probably enjoys the greatest share of attention and comment for those with an eye for church...more

The earliest construction in Edmond occurred along Broadway near the 1st and 2nd Street area. Facades whose construction was commemorated routinely bear dates from the Victorian era, with work in stone and cement first beginning in the 1890s. Today, the area retains its ancient vitality, due in large part to dedicated tenants including attorneys...more
When considering all the new construction in Edmond, most opinions are bound to recite the latest restaurant, megastore, department chain or supermarket, but on many street corners, and elsewhere on boulevards and bylanes, visitors can expect to see some new image. A small copy of the Statue of Liberty stands alongside the First Christian Church,...more
