Monday 4/3/17, we left the KOA in Springfield, MO for Stonewall, OK.

Stonewall is a town in Pontotoc County, Oklahoma. The population was 465 as of the 2000 census. There are not many businesses left in this small town. The business area consists of a couple of blocks on main street. The ones I can remember are City Hall, a hardware store, Abbott's Grocery and Feed Store, a beauty shop, a tire shop, and a gas station. As has become the norm in small towns, there is a Dollar General off the highway. The rest of the buildings are empty.

According to one of the residents, this was once a booming mecca of entertainment. There are a few buildings left to tell the story.

There are a few buildings left to tell the story. We arrived at our friend's ranch in the early afternoon. This trip was for DA to help our friend, RE, as he prepared to relocate from Texas to Oklahoma.

To be continued....

  1. Hi Betty! I love the name of the town. Too bad it's on the decline. Love the ranch gate, too. Have a great day!
