EDWARDS' Trading post Buried Treasure
Treasure property of California emigrants, is supposedly hidden
on Fish Creek near the old Edwards Post south of Holdenville.
One of the first known settlements in Hughes County was built up around the EDWARDS' Trading post, owned and operated by James EDWARDS, built on the edge of Little River. The post was located just south of what is now Holdenville, the county seat and where Fort Holmes, named for Lt. T. H. HOLMES, soon was established in 1834. In this area, the town of Fentress grew.
Edwards' Trading Post on the Little River and Canadian River junction was established in 1834
As the railroads came into the area , the settlement moved to the north as the businesses began to establish near by. Soon a request was made to re-name the town Holden to honor J. F. HOLDEN, Auditor and Traffic Manager for the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad. Because the name was so similar to another post office named Holder, it was changed and accepted as Holdenville.
During the next few years, construction continued. Stores and homes were popping up everywhere and people were arriving in Holdenville daily. A hearing was granted for November 14, 1898 and Holdenville became an Incorporated Town
I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow
