Located in Beckham County, Oklahoma on Interstate 40 and Historic U.S. Route 66 in western Oklahoma, Elk City is approximately 110 miles west of Oklahoma City and 150 miles east of Amarillo, Texas. Elk City's history dates back to the days immediately following the opening of the Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation in western Oklahoma Territory on April 19, 1892, when the first white settlers drove livestock over the Great Western Cattle Trail from Texas to Dodge City, Kansas, with Elk City being in the direct path of that famous trail. To give you a sense of what America’s highways were like, visit the National Route 66 & Transportation Museum which takes you through each of the eight states Route 66 passes through – from Illinois all the way to California. You can get your kicks on a Route 66 simulation in a 1955 pink Cadillac and watch a black and white movie at a mock drive-in theater while sitting in a classic Chevy Impala. The one-of-a-kind Transportation Museum invites both children and adults to experience automobiles of the past with interactive and hands-on displays.
The Route 66 complex also includes the Old Town Museum, which lets you tour early Oklahoma pioneer life as you wander through a two-story Victorian house. There is also The Farm & Ranch Museum and the Blacksmith Museum that displays agricultural tools and machinery and celebrates Oklahoma's pioneer heritage. Adjacent to old US Route 66 is Ackley Park, an old fashioned park which has the best Christmas light display in Oklahoma.
