Tonkawa

Native Americans, hardy pioneers, educators, oilmen, German prisoners of war and creative citizens have all left their mark on this city on the Salt Fork River. Tonkawa (the word translates as “they all stay together”) takes its name from the Tonkawa Tribe. Because of abundant wheat production in the area, Tonkawa styles itself the “Wheatheart of Oklahoma.” 

The picturesque Heart in the Park Labyrinth with its timeline of Tonkawa history and the Grand Heart Walk of art panels surrounded by personalized pavers are the latest additions to Centennial Park. A number of historical monuments and three museums - the McCarter Museum of Tonkawa History, the Tonkawa Tribal Museum and the A.D. Buck History and Welcome Center - give glimpses of the history of the Tonkawa.
