Caddo County, located in western Oklahoma, is named after the Caddo tribe of the area.  Numerous expeditions traveled through Caddo County in the early 1800s including the Dodge-Leavenworth and Whipple Expeditions.  The California Road also laid claim to sections of Caddo County and led travelers west during the Gold Rush.  Early 20th century transportation was supported by the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific (CRI&P) Railway, as well as the Oklahoma City and Western Railroad.  The county courthouse, located in Anadarko, was completed in 1958.  Today, visitors will find many recreational opportunities available in Caddo County including Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton, Fort Cobb State Park, Fort Cobb Reservoir, the Southern Plains Indian Museum and more.   

In 2000, census records showed 30,150 people living in Caddo County.  Countless assets exist for tracing genealogy in Caddo County including legal records, cemetery records and a local genealogical society.  Valuable resources for researching genealogy in Caddo County are provided below.
