Long Description:
This historical marker was installed in January 2019, on the brick wall near the entrance to the Edmond Sun newspaper office. The link below tells more of the story of the historical markers in downtown Edmond, and why new, updated ones were needed. Hundreds of hours of research went into these historical markers before the text was decided upon.
