I just finished reviewing your website and wondered if you had any information regarding the town of Caddo serving as a way station for the army at Fort Sill in the 1870s-80s. We have records in our museum archives stating the Quartermaster at Fort Sill employed blacksmiths and wheelwrights in the town of Caddo to maintain the wagons / horses that brought freight and passengers on the stage from Caddo to Fort Sill. This was a spur line from the main stage road (Butterfield Trail) that continued on to Colbert's Ferry on Red River. Fort Sill was the end of the line and the road from Caddo, I.T. became known as the "Caddo Road".
