Frederick was once home to an Army Airbase, and the men and women of the World War II Airborne Demonstration Team have worked hard to honor that part of our history by making their home here. The hangar is not open daily, but the WWII ADT does have many workdays at the hangar and two Open Hangar Days each year. For more information on visiting the hangar and info on the team, click here.
Zoos are always popular day trips, but why travel hours away when you can see animals from all over the world right here in Frederick?

Can you believe that 100 years (or so) ago, part of Tillman County was a wetland? It's true! Settlers built a large drainage ditch so that they could cultivate the land. In the 1990's the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife, began the process of obtaining land and reverting that area back to a wetlands. Today Hackberry Flat Wetlands is home to shorebirds and even the occasional whooping crane! The Wetlands area is open to the public, and the Hackberry Flat Center has several events and programs throughout the year, click here and here for more info.
