Population, 3000. The judicial seat of Garvin County is an enterprising, incorporated city located on the G.C. & S. Fe and Oklahoma and Eastern branch of the A.T. & S. Fe Ry., and on the Washita river, 55 miles south of Oklahoma City. It is in the fertile Washita valley and is surrounded by the best agricultural and stock raising land in the state, for which it is the logical trade center. The natural advantages of location, combined with the richness of soil and climate has produced a vigorous, healthy and continuous growth and at no time during the city's history has its wonderful progress been in response to artificial booming. The natural advantages of Pauls Valley were at no time better supplemented by its acquired advantages than they are today and the opportunities to inaugurate new enterprises and obtain homes, occupation and happiness are open to those who seek. T he city is the center of intellectual vigor with a past full of interest, a present full of earnestness and a future full of promise. The time is not far distant when the population of Pauls Valley will be doubled and perhaps tripled and she will be one of the most important and attractive centers of business in the state. It has churches of the leading denominations, the public school system is among the best in the southwest and affords excellent opportunities, the sanitary precautions are enlightened and vigilant, it has water works, fire department, sewerage system, 4 strong banks, a flouring mill with a daily capacity of 125 barrels, a cotton compress, grain elevator, ice plant, 3 cotton gins, local and long distance telephone facilities ad its stores offer metropolitan selection. The press is represented by 3 newspapers, the Herald, the Enterprise and the Valley News. There is nothing of greater importance to any city than the possession of adequate facilities for the entertainment of the traveling public in a thoroughly organized, efficient and high-class manner. Pauls Valley is fortunate in this respect, its hotels being favorably known for their excellent fare and service. A popular house of high-class is the Leland Hotel, adequately equipped with all of the modern conveniences of a first class hotel and in all respects the accommodations and service are in keeping with the excellent reputation the house enjoys. The principal shipments are cotton, grain, live stock, flour, alfalfa and produce. Tel., Postal and W.U. Exp., W.F. & Co., J.M. Dorchester, Postmaster.
