In the past, this region of the Southern High Plains provided a home to primitive hunters, Plains Indians, ranchers and pioneers. These people and their descendants have conquered natural and economic barriers in order to call this area home.
The Plains Indians and Pioneers Museum located in Woodward, the county seat of Woodward County, ranks one of the top five small museums in the nation and offers a view of this courageous history.
In the northern part of the county is Historic Fort Supply, an 1868 supply camp contributing history of Col. Custer, cattleman, and boomers. Five buildings remain today for public viewing.
Natural wonders at Alabaster Caverns and Boiling Springs State Parks offers spectacular experiences of caves, canyons, and nature trails.
