Description

Located in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, this 66-acre area looks much like Israel during Biblical times, and is the site of the nation's longest running Easter passion play, "The Prince of Peace." Attendance reached an all-time high in 1939 when 225,000 visitors jammed Audience Hill for the sunrise performance. Other attractions include a memorial for the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing, a Veterans Walkway, and the World Chapel, which has become a popular wedding locale. Donations appreciated.

From Charlene on 08/24/13

I'm from Mishawaka Indiana. My husband joined the army in late 2008 & in 2009 came to Ft. Bliss. We married that year & went sight seeing here in Lawton OK. The 1st thing we came to see was the Holy City of the Witchita. We loved it. It's rich with history. The view is magnificent. It's a must for everyone in the area.

I grew up on the easter show in the Wichita Mountains. We spent almost every weekend there camping.
