What Bert Has To Say About Lawton Metro Area


Lawton, once a center of the Oklahoma land rush, is now a military town at the edge of the southern Great Plains, is neat and clean but fairly nondescript. Fort Sill, the area’s main economic base, lies just outside of town. Outside of Fort Sill, government, health care and education, there is little private employment outside of a Goodyear plant. Lawton sits at the edge of the Wichita Mountains, a mostly worn down series of low hills and bluffs and home to the 60,000-acre Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
