The Trout Capital Of Oklahoma

The Garden Gate Variety Shop on Main Street in Gore, Oklahoma.

I wish we had more time here just so I could have popped into the Garden Gate, as there didn't seem to be much else going on in the town.

Interesting history though - the town name was changed from Campbell to Gore in 1909 in honor of Senator Thomas Gore. Wikipedia states, "Thomas Gore, for whom the town is named, is claimed to have been an atheist with a strong misanthropic streak - "a populist who didn't like people", as expressed by his grandson, author Gore Vidal."

They're apparently also known for trout.
