"A GOOD STOP IN NORTHERN OKLAHOMA" Blackwell by Rich62

Blackwell Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 23 photos

BLACKWELL, OKLAHOMA

WE LIKED BLACKWELL. OK, its not a booming town, its not all polished up, but somehow we liked it. Maybe it was the nice couple we met who run the Holy Grounds Coffee & Gift Shop (see shopping tips). Maybe it was the nice motel we stayed at (see Hotels & Motels tips).

Blackwell is 3 miles east of Interstate 35 in northern Oklahoma, probably only ten miles or so from the Kansas line.

Blackwell has been struggling economically, they have had industries shut down and so on, but they are keeping on with keeping on. Good for them.

A MUSEUM IN BLACKWELL

THE "TOP OF OKLAHOMA" MUSEUM MAKES AN INTERESTING STOP. The building which houses it was built in (about) 1912 for an exhibition to display the new invention called electricity! Then it became the electrical power company for Blackwell and now a fine museum.

    I've eaten at the McDonald's and refueled at the two Texacos west and east of I-35 many times on my travels northward and coming home.
