(October 7, 2012) Enlarge Looking southwest down Norris Road. Edward's Store is about 200 ft up the drive at right center of the picture. Between here and Holloway's Station the modern road pretty well follows the exact route of the stage trail

  

(October 7, 2012) Enlarge Edward's Store marker

     

(October 7, 2012) Enlarge Edward's Store from the OHS marker at edge of Norris Road. The store is the only original building located along the Butterfield Stage route in Oklahoma that is still standing

(October 7, 2012) Enlarge Front of Edward's Store, circa 1850. The original log home of Thomas Edwards

     

(Source: Oklahoma Historical Society) Enlarge An early view of Edward's Store before any major additions. Typical mid-19th century dogtrot, twin chimney structure

 

(October 7, 2012) Enlarge Front and east side. There have been a few additions to the store since the days of the Butterfield Overland Mail. The majority of the hand hewn logs are original. Most of the additions and repairs were done to the sides and back. From the front the structure looks pretty well like it did when stage travelers stopped to stretch their legs and get a good meal before continuing their journey
