Travel back to the 1890s, when Bristow originated near a railroad track between Sapulpa and Oklahoma City. At the recently restored Bristow Historical Depot and Town Square, you can see how the small town functioned back when cotton was king and the railroad was the main event. Get a feel for this historic Route 66 town at this fascinating museum.
Spend time with the Bristow Area Chamber of Commerce, housed in the one-story brick building originally constructed in 1923. Learn about notable people with ties to Bristow, like Gene Autry, who once served as a telegrapher in this exact historical depot, formerly known as the Frisco Railway depot. View a Frisco Railroad caboose on a special section of the railroad tracks.
