Archer City

A drive to Fort Sill offers an opportunity to pass through Archer City, north of Olney. Larry McMurtry owns the "Booked Up", a treasure trove of hard to find books on the West. There have been some interesting renovations to buildings around the square, including his "Last Picture Show".

East and West of SH-79, lie two important battle sites: The Battle of the Little Wichita and the Battle of Stone Houses, which was the worst defeat in Texas Ranger's history and occurred further south between SH-16 and SH-79.
