Woodward, Oklahoma (established 1887, population 11,500, elevation 1906) lies smack next to the eastern edges of both the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles, and just a few clicks south of the Kansas border. In the 1930s, the town and it's enduring forefathers stayed put and survived the worst of the Dust Bowl. Woodward also has the distinction of occupying Ground Zero of Tornado Alley. In 1947, virtually the entire town was leveled by one of the worst Tornados in U.S. history killing 107.
