Welcome to Oklahoma: yes, these towns really exist

Broken Bow– First, there’s Broken Arrow. Now the bow, too? The pilot episode for “Star Trek: Enterprise” was filmed here in 2001, titled “Broken Bow.”

Beaver– It is unknown if they have problems with dams, however, this town is home to the annual World Cow Chip Throwing Championship.

Disney– Sorry, there are no rides here. This town has no affiliation with Walt Disney. It is known as “Disney Island” because it sits on—you guessed it— an island, at the southern shore of Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees.

Fort Coffee– Has an area of 6.4 square miles with 419 mocha-loving people. Canadian- The birthplace to Holly Holland, an 8-year-old girl who won a writing contest for an episode for the children’s show, Arthur, which aired in 1999.

Hoot Owl– Hoot, hoot, who’s there? Four people with an area of 0.1 square miles.

Kingfisher– Birthplace of Wal-Mart’s founder Sam Walton.

Lone Wolf– Named for Chief Lone Wolf, a warrior chief of the Kiowa Indians.

Friendship– Makes up 0.15 miles of Oklahoma, with a population of 24 friendly people.

Loveland– Why didn’t we know of this place before? Because the population is 13. Before it closed, the post office was very popular on Valentine’s Day. People drove many miles to have their valentines postmarked “Loveland.”

Corn– A tornado was caught on film here for the second time in world history, and the first time in the U.S., on June 8, 1951.

Monkey Island– A peninsula on the northern shore of Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees, Monkey Island received its name as a joke quoted in the Tulsa World,
thus causing the name to stick.
