Waynoka, Oklahoma



This weekend we visited the train depot in Waynoka, Oklahoma. You can dine on Mexican food in the restaurant located in the restored Harvey House and see trains speeding by outside the window.





If you take young boys, don't expect them to be very hungry.



You may even get lucky and a train stops while the crew has lunch.




The upper level is a museum. One room was set up to look as it did when the Harvey Girls were in residence.








Read more about the Harvey House here.

The restored building is quite beautiful.

Wow, what a wonderful old building. It's wonderful to know it's being preserved, restored, cherished, and enjoyed. Old buildings like this help give a community character and a sense of history. It's great to see Riley enjoying the trains.

It sure is "quite beautiful"!
The stained glass and the woodwork were so worthy of saving; I'm glad demolition was not its fate.
