Aviation History

Not many would guess that Lawton is the birthplace of military combat aviation. In fact, Fort Sill, a United States Army post located in Lawton, was the first place that military combat planes took flight. In 1915, the 1st Aero Squadron received boxes of dissembled airplanes. They then assembled the planes, pushed them down the hill to the base's polo field, and made their first flights on August 10, 1915. Unfortunately, this exciting piece of history was followed by another first. Just two days later on August 12, 1915, the first airplane accident also occurred on the base, hospitalizing Lt. Rondondo B. Sutton, who was the pilot, and killing Captain George H. Knox, who was a passenger in the plane.

Easter Passion Play

Often compared to the Passion Play of Oberammergau, Lawton is home to the longest running Easter Passion Play in the U.S. So, if you are unable to travel to Germany this Easter, do not worry because Lawton has you covered. It is held each year at the Holy City of the Wichitas in the Wichita Mountain Refuge. It begins on Palm Sunday, continuing to the evening before Easter. The play began when Reverend Anthony Mark Wallock took his Sunday school class up a mountain to see a tableau of the Resurrection presented. This service became incredibly popular and quickly became an annual event.

Museum of the Great P

Anyone interested in great American history will appreciate the noble mission of the Museum of the Great Plain. This history museum is dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of items pertaining to the cultural and natural history of the Great Plains. The major exhibits at the museum highlight each of the diverse cultures that once inhabited the Great Plains, beginning with the Paleo-Indians in 11,500 BCE. Take in the museum's outdoor exhibits, including the original Blue Beaver Schoolhouse, a replica of the Red River Trading Post, and the Elgin Train Depot, featuring a Frisco locomotive.
