Made in America, Made in Oklahoma!

Handmade Soap

"Celebrating Made in America! 50 States in 50 days. Trivia: Vinita is the oldest incorporated town on OK Route 66 est. 1871. Vinita was the 1st town in OK to enjoy electricity. Originally named Downingville, the name was changed to Vinita, in honor of Vinnie Ream, the sculptress who created the life-size statue of Lincoln at the US Capitol. In 1998, a life size statue of a cattle drive, titled "On the Chisholm Trail," was set in place in Duncan as a monument to the American Cowboy."
