Back in the Saddle Again
About 20 minutes north of Ardmore sits one of Chickasaw Country’s most unassuming towns. Home to two churches, about 160 people and Sonny’s Grill and Country Store is Gene Autry, Oklahoma.
If you take a few windy roads and head up a hill, you’ll find the most well-known location in Gene Autry, The Gene Autry Oklahoma Museum. This former school building is filled with collectibles.
What most probably don’t know about the museum is that it’s home to more than just memorabilia of the singing cowboy. You can find more about the history of the town, like the town has had three different names, a vintage camera collection and antique toys.
Next time you are in south-central Oklahoma, we hope you will find some time to visit the museum and learn more about the town’s namesake.
