Afton, Oklahoma

Afton, Oklahoma was established as a farming community in 1886 and got it's name from the River Afton in Scotland - prominently mentioned in a Robert Burns poem.

In the hey-day of Route 66 Afton was a prosperous town, but today the Interstate has taken its toll on this small Oklahoma town. There is much to see and take pictures of in Afton though. Historic architecture, vintage gas stations and fading auto courts can still be found throughout the town. One such photogenic site is the old D-X Service Station, now preserved by Laurel and David Kane.

Afton Station is the dream of Laurel Kane who moved to Afton a few years ago specifically  to restore this classic gas station and open a visitor center on her beloved road.
