Welcome to Woodcrest
Where is Woodcrest, you ask? In the planning stages, according to this legal notice in the Guthrie News-Leader:
Roy Dodson, Petitioner
The petition, by law, must be presented to the County Commissioners, in this case Logan County. I made a perfunctory check of the map, and Mr Dodson's home, at least, is more than three miles from any incorporated area; I think it's probably safe to assume that the boundaries of the proposed town do not encroach on Guthrie or on Edmond. (Guthrie lies west of Interstate 35; Woodcrest is east of I-35.) It's also not within five miles of any section of Oklahoma City. There exists a Woodcrest Volunteer Fire Department.
The name has obviously been there for years; where it comes from, I'm not entirely sure, though there's a Woodcrest Tavern at Charter Oak Road and Midwest Boulevard, about a mile from the Dodson house, and a Woodcrest Baptist Church, about a mile to the east. And what's an Oklahoma town without a tavern and a Baptist church?
