Texola Ghost Town
Prosperous at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, Texola made its fortune in farming. It was located next to the historic Route 66 which was also a popular highway during that era. Near the border of Texas, the land was surveyed several times with the border changing each time. Residents here moved back and forth from Texas to Oklahoma without ever walking a step or packing a single box. While the town certainly appears deserted there are about 50 people residing here today.
