    First United Methodist Church

    The First United Methodist Church on US-81 is a conspicuous red-brick house of worship with somewhat of a composite style of architecture and several windows of stained glass. As with all such places, phone ahead to see when services are since the offices are not necessarily open all week.

    Historic El Reno

    El Reno city mural, one of two

    El Reno (like Okarche, Kingfisher and Oklahoma City) grew up at the same time with the Land Run of 1889. More important by far than Okarche, El Reno has a wide variety of historical attractions to compete with Kingfisher for the tourism "donation." (Most museums here are free also, but donations are eagerly welcome.) El Reno has several local restaurants, an historic downtown and part of a Main Street USA program, a veterans memorial plaza, and wonderful church architecture, plus a number of other delights.

    Historic but Petite Okarche

    St John's Lutheran, Okarche

    If you're traveling to El Reno from Kingfisher, you'll pass through the village of Okarche (pop. 1,100). Okarche has few buildings of note but supports a popular and famous restaurant known statewide as Eischen's Bar (or Eischen's Chicken). Otherwise there are a few large mansions in town that seem incongruous with the more humble residences and a few tall church steeples to rouse a small interest in this otherwise untrammeled "spit in the road."
