Comanche, Oklahoma Homes and Community
Comanche, Oklahoma is a town that is known for its farmlands, oil fields and rich cultural heritage. Located within the Southwestern area of Stephens County, Comanche real estate was first established as a part of the Louisiana Purchase. The area was then established as primarily Indian Territory in 1855, and was later designated as Comanche Nation Terrain. An Indian landowner named Johnny D. Wilson gave the area its current site in 1892, and then later the next year a post office was moved to the area to serve residents of Comanche homes. After its official incorporation in 1898 and the time of the Civil War, Comanche homes became a central hub for local cattlemen. The area also attracted agricultural enthusiasts that produced peanuts and pecans, wheat and other grains, and cotton. The area's progression was spurred on by the Pacific Railway and Chicago-Rock Island Railroad. However, the area's first oil well was tapped in 1918, and more than 200 others within the area were tapped by 1938. Today, the Comanche Home Buyer can still see the cultural influences of Native Americans and cattlemen of the 20th Century. In fact, Native Indian tribal ceremonies are still in practice today.
