The Eskridge

Located in beautiful downtown Wynnewood, Oklahoma on Highway 29, 1/2 block east of State Highway 77 on the the north side of the street.

Unchanged in architecture except for the front porch, the Eskridge Hotel has been converted into a wonderful three-story museum for the public to enjoy and learn about the history of our community and the surrounding area.

Full of small town charm, Wynnewood sits just off I-35, 60 miles south of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and 150 miles north of Dallas, Texas.

History

In 1874 a small settlement existed in Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma) where the stage coach line crossed the Washita River; this settlement was known as Cherokee Crossing, or Cherokee Town. When the railroad planned to come through about 4 miles south, a merchant there, John Walner, moved his family and store by ox team to a location on the railroad.

In 1886, this new community was named "Walner", but in 1887, it was renamed "Wynnewood" by the railroad men, after their hometown in Pennsylvania.
