Wewoka Trading Post Keeps Area's History Alive
WEWOKA, Oklahoma - Road Trip Oklahoma always provides News 9 with great stories, great food, and great people. Sometimes those people are great characters.
The Wewoka Trading Post is fast becoming a tradition in town. It's part dance hall, part, antique shop, and part museum. Owners Zane Smith and Jim Chadick have been friends for a long time, even though they can't seem to agree on who's the boss.
The post is brimming over with native art that Chadick has collected over the last fifty years or so. Much of it was traded for meals back when Chadick and Smith owned a restaurant.
The post also holds dances every Friday night, Smith and Chadick said they haven't missed a Friday in five years, or maybe six. The guys can't seem to agree on that either.
