The town was established as Oklahoma's first resort community in the 1920's, hosting a variety of clientele from politicians to the infamous "Pretty Boy" Floyd.
One unique quality of the town is its law requiring all structures to be built from the melon-sized granite cobblestones indigenous to the area.
The Wichita Mountains Nat'l Wildlife Refuge has over 60,000 acres and 20 miles of hiking trails to help absorb the ambience of the area. Nearby Mount Scott is said to haunted and is said to conceal Spanish gold and outlaw bounty.
