Love the pics. Wondering if anyone has the newspaper clipping on the rock house burning. My father, Jack Ingram lived there. Everytime I came back I would get new pics of the house. Its not the same without that house standing tall.

Between the wooden cross on the door and the ominous sky over the cemetery, some of those pics are fairly creepy. I don't think I have seen a pay phone, much less a blue bubble SWBT pay phone, in years!

You know I love the ghost towns the most Justin. Keep them coming

My whole family the Thompson's are buried there as well. I'm 43 and I have a lot of memories there and made lots of friends.

I've been through Reed a thousand times, as my grandparents have always lived on the Greer/Harmon line. Mom graduated high school there, Grand-ma too. Uncle started there but was bussed to Mangum once Reed closed the school. I probably had my first ever cheese-and-crackers with my Grand-dad out front of the little store that closed decades ago, my first Mt. Dew at the garage across the road. Great-Aunt still lives there. The dust of that place is still in my bones, I'm sure.

I'm Kent Ponder. My dad, Elmer Ponder, ex-pitcher Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, was born there in 1893, in a dugout for tornado protection. Later moved to Mangum, where his younger brother became a Chevrolet dealer.
I enjoyed your comments very much.

I have a great picture of a Reed Baseball Team that my grandfather played on around 1925. I sure would like to share it but don't know how I can post it. I can also send it to your email if you would like. My grandfather was William Edward Moseley, Jr. I have more pictures of Reed too. My email address is moseleyr@earthlink.net.

I put up the Southwest Oklahoma Telephone Lettering back when I was in high school fifteen years ago. One of these days that pay phone will be worth some money.

My grandmother was buried in Reed OK in 2000. This place looks like it has been abandoned for decades, though. She went to high school in Reed and I have her old black and white year book. I know it's a long shot, but if anyone stumbles upon grave markers with the last name McAllister please post some pictures. I have never been able to visit.

Hi Rebecca,
My grandparents had a farm just north of Reed and I have heard the McAllister name before. What year was your grandmother born. My dad was Lee Moseley and he was born in 1926. His brother was Gary Moseley and he was born in 1931. I still have some of his school pictures.

at findagrave.com there are 4 McAlisters (one L in name) listed for Reed cemetery. None were buried in 2000. Maybe you could add a memorial page for her there, then submit a photo request. Maybe someone will see the request and post a photo for you.

On the birth certificate for an uncle, 1920, my grandmother listed her birthplace as Reed (1896). Her father was a circuit riding Methodist minister and farmer. I don't think the family was in Reed very long as each of her 10 siblings was born in a different place. The family moved all over west Texas in Eastern New Mexico for years.

My maternal Grandparents, Claude and Ferrel Simmons lived North, just outside Reed. In the early 30s, my Father Clifton Potter and his brothers, Coy Potter and Boots Potter ran a small mechanics shop in Reed. I traveled though and stopped in Reed, at the gas station, many times in my youth, in the early 1950s. It is heartening to see this tribute to Reed. Brings back a flood of memories.

My dad grew up here and is buried at the cemetery. Can't go visit his old farmhouse since they built the new bridge over the river, road it blocked on both ends.
