Steam Engine

Ardmore, Oklahoma in the South Central part of the state has some of the neatest sites to see and historic things they have saved, for the education of future generations. This steam engine is just one of the many things I enjoyed seeing on a trip down I-35 to Ardmore.
Can you imagine traveling on this once "modern" mode of transportation?

Ardmore,Oklahoma had two major disasters that destroyed most of the town. In 1895 a fire destroyed the town and in 1915 an explosion and fire destroyed it again. As the sign says this locomotive brought doctors and nurses to Ardmore after the 1915 explosion.
Ardmore is rich in history! Ardmore is the hometown of the Williams Family,  Bill Dalton-outlaw, Rue McClanahan-actress, S.N. Goldman-shopping cart inventor, Mark Gastineau-football player and Samuel Lloyd Noble-oilman.
