Frontier Country

Wooded hill country gradually transitions to rolling short-grass prairie in the heart of Oklahoma; This region was once part of the wild-and-rowdy Great American Frontier. Although Oklahoma’s territorial frontier days have ended, the remarkable spirit of this thriving crossroads region embodies the feisty independence of bygone days. Today, new frontiers are emerging in a renaissance rooted in the best of the past and the bright horizons of the future, as Oklahoma embarks on its second century of statehood.
