Avery, Oklahoma...An Oklahoma Ghost Town

This is an interesting link. Avery, OK was located south of Cushing and northwest of Stroud. Hughie and Arlie Earp lived there during their early marriage because their first son Ernie Earp was born there in 1917.


  1. Thanks for posting, Gerry! The article and video were really interesting to me. My folks lived in the area about 1930 while my dad taught school at the Sunny Side School (picture of it on the video). A lot of my Miller ancestors lived in the area, too: my great-grandfather, Andrew Jackson Miller, died there. We have been to the Avery Memorial Cemetery two or three times in the last few years and drove through what was once Avery. There is not much of anything left there now, hard to believe that there was so much there at one time. Very interesting article and video!

  2. Directions to find Avery: From Stroud, Lincoln Co., OK, on OK Hwy 99, go north until you come to farm road #E0780, turn west and go about 4 miles.

    From Agra, Lincoln Co., OK, turn east onto Agra Avery Road and go about 7 miles. Agra is located abt 15 niles north of Chandler on OK Hwy 18.

    Hope this helps "Anonymous" find Avery.
