Description

Woodward, Oklahoma is located on the eastern edge of the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles. Before settlers arrived in 1887, the area was home to Kiowa, Comanche, Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes. The town is rich with history, from Indian wars to natural disasters, to the rise of the Oklahoma Oil Industry. Community residents are well known as very friendly, hospitable people who stick together through good and bad times.

Visitors should make a stop at the Veterans Memorial Center or the Plains Indians & Pioneers Museum to get a taste of history. For outdoor fun, head to Rotary Park, or to the Goetzinger Walking Trails for seven miles of scenic views.

The community takes pride in its eco-friendliness and commitment to clean, sustainable energy. Woodward serves as a hub for renewable energy, with 38,000 megawatts of wind power in development.

Community residents enjoy cultural entertainment at both the Woodward Arts Theatre and Jose Adams Cultural Center. The theatre was originally built in the 1920s and restored in the ‘80s.

The citizens of Woodward and an incredible number of volunteers from all over the state and country have helped cleanup and rebuild from the recent tornadoes so the town can continue moving forward. We hold a special place in our hearts for Woodward, one of the 2011 Friendliest Small Towns in America, and would like to direct anyone willing to support them in their time of need to the Woodward Community Foundation, the official repository for contributions to help the victims of this disaster.

Friendly small town. When you're here, you're like family.

Woodward is a very progressive town for its size. Woodward promotes all sources of energy, fossil & green. We have historical sites to see, such as Ft, Supply. The people of Woodward will go that extra mile to make your trip memorable. For instance there was a terrible wind storm that wiped out a neighboring towns college baseball stadium and they played the game in Woodward. Not only didt Woodward find them a place to stay, but the restaruants opened up late to feed them. Going the extra mile is common for this Town.
