Those Places Thursday: In A Country Churchyard

The year was 1975, and we were south of Anadarko, Oklahoma (18 miles west of Chickasha) on a fall foliage tour. I noticed a church steeple rising up out of the red, gold and green foliage.

As we bumped down the hill, on a narrow rutted road, I had no idea of the historical significance, of the well kept, old church-school house we would find there.

Note: Anadarko is deep in what was once Indian Territory, and  now has the tourist attraction called, "Indian City".
