We welcome queries that deal with Custer County Ok. to be included in the newsletters, please tell us Who, When, Where & What you are looking for. We also enjoy printing stories of early settlers in Custer county and articles dealing with the history of the area.

We share our new location with the Western Oklahoma Historical Center Inc. who are using the house as their office space for now. The WOHC group have moved the old Cedar 1 room schoolhouse from north of Weatherford and relocated it in Heritage park at 518 West Main.

Western Oklahoma Historical Center, INC. also takes care of the Blair Log Cabin located across from the Weatherford Post Office.
The Historical one room Cabin is the oldest building in Weatherford. The Custer County Master Gardeners maintain the wonderful heirloom
planting beds around the cabin. (*they deserve some credit for all their hard work)
