SULPHUR, Okla. (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin says a new quarter will be released by the U.S. Mint that features a southern Oklahoma recreation area.
A ceremony launching the Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter will be held Wednesday in Sulphur.
The quarter marks the 10th release of the America the Beautiful Quarter Series, a program honoring the United States' national parks and sites.
According to the National Parks Service, the 10,000-acre Chickasaw National Recreation Area was originally authorized in 1902 as Sulphur Springs Reservation and was renamed and redesignated as Platt National Park in 1906.
