Hugo

As a railroad hub in the early 1900s, Hugo, Oklahoma was a hotbed of activity, with a vivid mix of dance hall girls, hustlers and gunfighters, a Harvey House Restaurant, and at one time, a dozen circuses wintering nearby taking advantage of the moderate climate and easy rail access. The Hugo Frisco Depot Museum in the restored former Harvey House Restaurant captures some of this rollicking past, and Mount Olivet Cemetery showcases the final resting places for rodeo greats. The cemetery also features a special area known as "Showmen's Rest," which features unique headstones and gravesites for circus performers and owners. Ready for sweet dreams? Try the Old Johnson House Inn Bed and Breakfast built in 1910 – it still boasts many original furnishings from its territorial days.
