Seminole Things to Do
Murals painted on the back of a building on Oak Street.
These murals have all been removed, (all but one) I noticed last week (December 2001). I hope they are repainted. I'm glad I took the photographs now.
An artistist's rendering of the oil boom days long ago in Seminole.
Seminole Municipal Park
Just beyond the well is the rodeo arena and to the left, not pictured, are tennis courts and baseball fields.
The Jimmie Austin Golf Course is said to be one of the best golf courses in Oklahoma. 18 Hole, open to the public.
Rolling hills, wooded, trees on 18 holes, water on 9 holes, sand traps on 6 holes, grass bunkers on 3 holes, narrow tree lined, Bermuda fairways with large, undulating, elevated bentgrass greens.
The Boom Day Golf Tournament is the first weekend in July.

Polo's Mexican Restaurant
This building used to be the local freight depot. With the exception of Chicago, it did more business than any other city on the Rock Island Railroad line.
Favorite Dish: Burrito Lujosos! It is a huge portion!
Seminole Warnings and Dangers
Traffic sometimes. There are two Wrangler plants in Seminole...yes the blue jeans place.
Wrangler also puts on a Sports Festival during Gusher Days
Favorite thing: Visit the Jasmine Moran Foundation
It is a wonderful place for children to explore...hands on!
Fondest memory: This 21,000 foot square building was transformed from an oil field related business to a building filled with educational and entertaining exhibits for children and adults too! They expanded the building in 1998 to 28,000 square feet.
