The subject of this blog has been cobbled together

I just came across a blog called Medicine Park Posts, which is devoted to the historic resort town of Medicine Park, Oklahoma. The town was founded 99 years ago and is a few miles north of Lawton and Fort Sill, and just east of the entrance to the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. The town sits in a shady valley along Medicine Creek and is famous for the number of buildings made of cobblestones. It's a pretty place, and it reminds me a bit of Luckenbach in the Texas Hill Country. The people there seem very serious about making it a destination once again while preserving its history.

Medicine Park Posts has the happy news that the old Medicine Park Music Hall is open for business once again and serving food, with plans to offer live entertainment in the near future. (They serve cheddar-garlic biscuits -- reason enough to stop in.)

For newcomers to town, this post explains the etiquette of small-town covered dish suppers.

Michael, Medicine Park got whacked pretty hard by the recent rains and floodings. My wife and I went out for a date to a cafe there; the walk along the creek had subsided due to the flooding. A few days later it flooded so hard that the waters disabled a vehicle bridge and a walking bridge over Medicine Creek.

Medicine Park is a hidden beautiful place that everyone in Oklahoma should visit. We were stationed at Ft. Sill in the late 70's and ate at the hall many times - big steaks that hung over the edges of the plate. The town is quaint, there is even an old jail that is scary, people very nice. We bought a home in Wichita Mt. Estates and had a view of the mountain to look at. We even walked up the mountain for exercise. And if you visit don't forget Meare's Burgers - the burger as big as a pie pan. You drive through the wildlife refuge to get to this place. Ft. Sill is still beautiful and well kept-a visit is worthwhile. We've been back many times to the Lawton area -very nice. Fishing is good too in surrounding lakes.
