EXPLOSION OF PROSPERITY

Old Hochatown. Once a sleepy Choctaw Indian village, it became an isolate haven for white settlers in the 20th century. Nearby on the Mountain Fork River, Beavers Bend State Park was built by a government make-work program during the Great Depression and came online as the crown jewel of Oklahoma's state parks in 1936.

Old Hochatown was moved from its location in the Mountain Fork River Valley in the 1960s to make way for Broken Bow Lake. Tourism grew from a small business to an enormous enterprise as people from Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas discovered its splendor.

This book captures the bold and exciting history of Beavers Bend State Park and the surrounding area, chronicles the lives of characters who pioneered life in Old Hochatown, and explains and celebrates the phenomenal growth of tourism and accommodations around new Hochatown and Broken Bow Lake.

It was the outpouring of love from the young that assured Oklahomans that they would survive and their loved ones would never be forgotten.
