At the bottom of the page are 'Places of Interest' where I have captured some of the history of the local area.

Located six miles east of Ponca City, consisting of a general store, housing a post office from February 4. 1895 to October 31. 1903. A dance hall, on the second floor, accomodated the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs. Batchelder was located on the Arch Kenyon homestead, with Kenyon serving as the postmaster. Carson S. Williams carried mail on a small burro to Batchelder from Cross for the nine years the post office was in existence.[1]
