    Veterans Memorial

    by Basaic Written Feb 24, 2016

    There is a very nice veterans memorial listing the names of all veterans of the nation's military in the Freedom City Park. I feel it is important to remember the sacrifices made by our veterans and their contributions to our freedom and our way of life.

    I stopped in Freedom for two main reasons; their museum and the name of the town. Glad I did. Freedom is a tiny town of about 300 (up 10% since 2000) located along Oklahoma Highway 50 just south of U. S. Highway 64 in Woods County in the Northwestern part of the state near the panhandle. Freedom was established around the time of the Cherokee Strip Land Run in 1893 and grew when the Buffalo and Northwestern Railroad came through town. The town incorporated in 1925. The town's economy has long revolved around beef, growing wheat, and the production of salt. This tiny town also attracts a fair number of tourists. Alabaster Caves State Park is just south of here and the Battle of Turkey Springs (the last major battle between the Plains Indians and the U.S. Army occurred 10 miles northeast of here in 1878. Freedom has about 30% more women than men.

    Explore Alabaster Caverns

    While visiting with relatives in Woodward I was able to take a trip to this beautiful State Park and go into the caverns. I definately recomend it. Although at the time I was more able bodied. Unfortunately the cavern is not handicap accessible. Though the cave tour is not accessible, there is a video of the tour available in the Visitor Center If you can make it into the cavern it is certainly a beauty. According to the info on the park web site they have recently gone through and totally redone the lighting inside. Alabaster Caverns is the nation’s largest publicly held gypsum cave which is open to visitors. It is ¾ of a mile long and descends several hundred feet below the earth’s surface. Nature began creating Alabaster Caverns some 200 million years ago when the area was covered by an inland sea. The history of the Old West is alive in the Freedom area, and the caves served as hide-outs for outlaws prior to settlement. Today, guided tours are conducted daily and thousands of visitors can view massive boulders of alabaster and selenite as they wind their way through the cave. The average temperature in the caverns is fifty degrees year-round.

    Cave Tour Fees
    $8.00 Adults, ages 13 to 62
    $6.00 Seniors, 62 and older
    $5.00 Children, ages 6-12
    Children under 5 admitted free.
    The park also has camping and other features. You can even go get a permit and do some wild caving.
