In 1912, the Depot became the hub of the community. Brick pavers surround the north side, between the building and the railroad. The city now owns the building and a public library is open during the week. Inside there is a room dedicated to its railroad history, serving as a museum, and numerous historical photographs of the region are displayed throughout the library. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. It also serves as a public town hall meeting place for legislators and as events center for everything from art shows to wedding receptions.
Welcome to Oklahoma’s Chisholm Trail Centennial Corridor sign was established in 2007 for the state Centennial celebration. The highlight was a month long cattle drive, from the Red River north into Kansas.
Store proprietor Allen Wooten has been collecting instruments and country music memorabilia for over 10 years. Much of his instrument collection is for sale. Every Thursday evening, he hosts an acoustic session in his Cowboy Opry venue, along with something to eat if you’re hungry. It’s kind of like the Bluebird Café of Southern Oklahoma. There’s plenty of stories, music and things to see and share at this little store which sits at the intersection of US Highway 81 and Oak Main in Comanche. He also offers music lessons for those who want to learn a lil’ pickin’.
Welcome to Eischen’s Antique Bar…
the oldest bar in the state of Oklahoma! Eischen’s Saloon was established in 1896 by Peter Eischen and was open until Statehood and Prohibition. Eischen’s Bar opened shortly after the end of Prohibition by Nick & Jack Eischen, son and grandson of Peter Eischen.
The massive back bar, a vital part of the history of Eischen’s was hand carved in Spain in the early 1800s. During the Gold Rush it was shipped to California. It was lost in time until it was brought to Okarche in 1950 for the enjoyment of all who stopped by Eischen’s. On January 21, 1993, fire destroyed Eischen’s and one of the things remaining is a small part of the antique back bar.
