Ft. Gibson

The Phoenix City Directory 1916 Directory of Fort Gibson Fort Gibson is located on the Frisco and Iron Mountain Railways about nine miles northeast of Muskogee and is an incorporated town of about 1800 population. It is surrounded by a rich and fertile agricultural district and is an important shipping point for cotton, potatoes, hay and corn. It has two flourishing banks; an enterprising newspaper, the New Era; three good hotels and an excellent opera house. The religious community is well represented by the Baptist, Methodist and Presbyterian churches. The Grand River affords excellent water power facilities and the town is lighted by electricity. The National Cemetery is located here and the landmarks of the old fort are still extant. The business interests are conducted on a safe and conservative basis and the merchants are prosperous and energetic.
