The landscape which presents itself as you drive west of Anadarko on highway 62 is almost the equal of the better known 152 drive.

First to come here under supervision of the federal government were the Caddo Indians in 1859 for whom the County is named. The first residents arrived in 1867 - members of the Wichita, Caddo and Delaware Tribes were assigned lands north of the Washita River and members of the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache Tribes were settled south of the river.
