Medford, the county seat and boyhood home of Army Chief of Staff, Dennis J. Reimer, (Ret.), features a 9-hole golf course, an asphalt-runway airport and the Grant County Homesteaders Monument. Just south is the "Ghost Town" of Jefferson. Sewell's Stockade and the crossing of the Chisholm Trail are just a mile south of Medford with historic monuments 11/4 miles east of Highway 81.
Across the Salt Fork River lies the community of Pond Creek, which hosts the Grant County Fair every September. Further west is the community of Nash, known for it Homesteaders Brick Memorial Walk, located in the town park.
North is Wakita, the town made famous by the movie Twister. While there, visit the "Twister" Museum, take a walk through the Butterfly Garden and see the Grant County Veterans Memorial Brick Plaza Garden. Each September, the town and the Wakita Lions Club host the "Old Settlers" Cherokee Strip Celebration.
