Lugert, Oklahoma

Austrian Immigrant, Frank Lugert (1868~1958)

Founded the town of Lugert when the Kiowa~Comanche~Apache Reservation opened for settlement in 1901. Mr. Lugert ran the Post Office, train depot, and the general store. The town with a peak population of over 400, thrived until 1912 when a tornado destroyed a significant number of homes and business. The town continued to exist until 1941 when the W.C. Austin Dam was completed for the Lugert~Altus Irrigation District and water soon covered the townsite.

The town of Lugert was located 1 1/4 miles southeast of this point. 5~06
