Oklahoma's Own News 9 is hitting the road once again with our next stop on November 11th in Chandler.

On September 28, 1891, Chandler, Oklahoma was one of two towns to have its own land run and be established. The city has a population of approximately 2,900 people, with a school system consisting of a pre-kindergarten through second grade elementary, a third grade though sixth grade elementary, a junior high, and a high school. 19 properties in Chandler are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, which include a filing station, several homes and churches, and commercial buildings.

The Lincoln County Historical Society has worked to maintain the Museum of Pioneer History which holds a large variety of photographs, artifacts, and history related to the county. The town is also home to the Chandler Route 66 Interpretive Center, which features videos, displays, a gift shop, and information on the famous Route 66.

Famous Oklahomans from Chandler include classical music composer Roy Harris and award-winning author of historical and contemporary novels for young adults Anna Meyers.
