Laverne

Located in Northwestern Oklahoma as you head towards the Oklahoma panhandle is the friendly and quaint town of Laverne. Laverne is famously known as the home of Miss America 1967, Jane Jayroe! Other Notable Natives are Jimmy Webb, a songwriter/singer and Travis Jett, National FFA President 2006. Laverne prides itself in being the home of the Tigers, which is the school’s mascot. The residents, businesses and Community are so supportive of all the accomplishments that its great athletes have made.

                  For a small town of only 1344 residents as of the 2010 census, Laverne is big when it comes to supporting local businesses and it’s Community. Laverne is home to the biggest Fourth of July Celebration in the Northwest area. It all started back in 1974 with a 4th of July town Barbeque and has since grown into the big event it is today. The town’s local Chamber of Commerce sponsors this event every year which includes things such as a parade, lucky duck race, turtle races, free BBQ supper, entertainment and a big fireworks display at dark just to name a few. It is a guarantee that you will have a wonderful time alongside family and friends during this grand event.

                  Another grand event that is a time honored tradition for the Town of Laverne is the Miss and Mr. Laverne Pageant. Miss Laverne was started back in 1953, it wasn’t until 1992 that the Pageant incorporated a Mr. Laverne to represent the town alongside Miss Laverne. The Pageant showcases the fashion, poise, and talent of the contestants competing for a scholarship for the school of their choice. This event is definitely one you don’t want to miss!

                  The Laverne Area Chamber of Commerce also hosts an annual Christmas celebration and Parade, with warm hot chocolate and cookies along with a meet and greet and picture with Santa at the Park to end the event.

                  Although Laverne is small, it has so much to offer its residents and neighbors. With 4 restaurants and a variety of dining options from American cuisine to authentic Mexican food to home style cooking and a deli style sandwich shop including food options at both convenient stores, you will surely find something to please your taste buds. This small town is also home to many flourishing businesses that one would find in a bigger town. Also located in Laverne is the Golf course and Country Club, with a 9-hole golf course and club house that is accessible for gatherings. While visiting Laverne you will want to check out The Community Museum which was once the Historic Fox Hotel, which includes Harper County artifacts and much more. The Museum is open on the 4th of July, homecoming and by appointment. Other Historic places include the MK&T Depot, Clover Hotel and North Main Street District.
