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.

Woodward was a great place to grow up. Everyone one there makes you feel like family!

I remember as a child going to Woodward at least once a month. People are friendly and will do what they can to help anyone in need or not! And thats why, now as an adult, we have moved to Woodward! I have seen some of the friendliest people at the United Grocery Stores and the MidFirst Bank!!
