Sulphur Things to Do

    as happy as I normally am when visiting here

    More than anything else, Sulphur is known as the primary jump-off for the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, which was originally set aside as Platt National Park in 1906, Oklahoma's first national park. Understanding that the area is not worthy of national park status, the service reduced the park to a recreation area, which is better understandable. Oklahoma (I blush to say) has very few natural lakes. We can thank earthmovers for most of our water sports and drinking water. However, as I'm frequently found to be wrong or biased where I shouldn't be, the 3.4 million annual visitors might have something to say about my negative opinion of the place.

    Murray County Courthouse

    The Murray County Courthouse is laid back one block south of the main road, OK-7, but ask a local and they'll get you there. The building is one of the county's four listings on the National Register of Historic Places, but to my mind without any visual merit for its consideration. Four pilasters on a plain brick facade just to not warrant architectural applause! The other public access registration in town is the Sulphur Armory (the National Guard Armory), which appears abandoned, sitting across from the high school's empty football field. I was so discouraged with both that I only took a picture of the courthouse.

Sulphur Off The Beaten Path

    Davis Santa Fe Depot

    The Davis Santa Fe Depot in nearby Davis is rightfully listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Inside the museum (open 10-4) you'll find mannikins taking the place of conductors, ticket window attendants, armed services recruiters, and the stationmaster's family, but their environs are as authentic-looking today as they would have been a century or so ago. As the Arbuckle History Museum, there are numerous displays and documents that will engage your full attention. Admission is free but donations are welcome.
