Though it was played by Guthrie in the movie “Twister,” this Red Carpet Country city has some history that will blow you away. Originally named Lamoreaux, the city’s leaders wanted to rename it “Santa Fe” (huh, that sounds familiar), but the owners of the Santa Fe Railroad objected because there were already too many other cities named Santa Fe. Instead, it adapted the name of a nearby town where the railroad station had just failed. Another fun fact: the city’s entire downtown is on the National Register of Historic Places. It also has the largest collection of limestone buildings in Oklahoma.

What is the name of this city?
