Party of 1888 Is Again Recalled
The first Ardmore birthday celebration was held in 1888 said CHARLEY CULBERSON of Woodford. He came in a covered wagon to attend it. He lived then at Simon but came from Woodford to attend the celebration. He came with his own family and the family of C. F. CRAIN.

The barbecue was held south of the BEN FORBES store on East Main Street and the grounds extended west to the present location of the Swift Plant. There was a ballgame between Healdton and Ardmore. The diamond was on the west side of the tracks between the Whittington hotel site and the Santa Fe tracks and extended south toward the flouring mill. Healdton won the game.

JOHN BULLA was a Healdton player and Mr. CULBERSON / CULBERTSON says as far as he known, Mr. Bulla is the only surviving member of the Healdton players. He did not know the Ardmore players.

Soldiers from Fort Sill were here, said Mr. Culberson. They had come on account of the cattle tax trouble. Clay pigeon trap shooting was a diversion of the day. One of the soldiers operated the trap.

The second reunion was held in the ROFF pasture on East Main Street and after that, the picnic grounds were established at Whittington park.

Mr. CULBERTSON moved from Spanish Fort, Texas to Grady, Indian Territory in 1884. he says JAKE BODOVITZ was the first grocer in Ardmore to cut the prices on groceries.
