Located in the Heart of Oklahoma, Purcell’s history dates back to 1887 when the town became an important commercial center with the arrival of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad. Anchored by its landmark antique shops, Purcell’s downtown business district serves as both a source of pride for local residents and a destination for many tour groups. From numerous retail shops, a renovated pre-statehood hotel, and a remodeled historic theater filled with antique shops, to a downtown park which includes a genuine Santa Fe caboose, you’ll find everything you need to enjoy this historic location.
The McClain County Museum contains 11 rooms of artifacts, furniture and other items relating to area history. Ranch tours of the many state-of-the-art Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred breeding and training facilities make for a wonderful day trip, along with the many great antique shops, specialty stores, and restaurants that Main Street has just up the hill from the Train Depot. The Purcell City Lake area also offers visitors an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, fishing, and picnicking opportunities. Go to The Heart of Oklahoma Chamber or call 405-527-3093.
