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.

Woodward is the best place to live.We are friendly people and take pride in our town. On Main Street we look forward to people visting our town so we can sho off our hospitality and unique shops. Woodward is my hometown and I'm proud of being from Woodward.

I lived in Woodward all of my life until just a few years ago. It will always be home to me. Fortunately for me, when I have a tinge of homesickness, Woodward is just a couple of hours away! I return home and never have enough time to visit with all of my friends and see all of the things I want to see. It is absolutely the friendliest town I have ever been in!!!!

Woodward is a wonderful town to visit and to live. Its a "big small town or a small big town" right in the middle nowhere. You find nice motels, restaurants, and shopping. The people that live here are so friendly.
