Vinita chosen as 'True Western Town'

January 18, 2017


Thousands of great towns can be found in the American West—ones that exemplify the spirit and dedication of the pioneers who built and developed them.


Every February for the past 12 years, True West Magazine has honored the best of the best Western towns with their annual top ten True Western Towns.


The editorial staff of True West also honors Western towns in three additional categories: “Towns to Know,” “Towns to Watch,” and “Where History Lives.”


In True West Magazine’s February 2017 issue, out on newsstands on January 3, 2017, the editorial staff recommends the following “Towns to Watch” for their exceptional dedication to preservation, heritage and Old West tourism.


True Western “Towns to Watch” in 2017:
  • Colorado Springs, Colorado

  • Eureka, California

  • Kernville/Kern Valley, California

  • Kerrville, Texas

  • McCook, Nebraska

  • Miles City, Montana

  • Red River, New Mexico

  • Toppenish, Washington

  • Sidney, Nebraska

  • Vinita, Oklahoma

“These Western ‘Towns to Watch’ all honor the past and celebrate the present,” explains True West Executive Editor Bob Boze Bell. “In doing those things, these towns have a very bright future—and deserve to be visited by all folks who treasure the Old West.”


This is the twelfth year True West has presented this annual award.


Editors base their selection on criteria demonstrating how each town has preserved its history through old buildings, museums and other institutions, events, and promotions of historic resources.


True West magazine is in its 65th year of leading the way in presenting the true stories of Old West adventure, history, culture and preservation.
