About Elk City
As of the census of 2010, there were 11,693 people residing in the city.
At the turn of the twenty-first century Elk City had a council-manager form of government. Residents supported two school systems that included grades prekindergarten through high school. An eighty-four-bed Great Plains Regional Medical Center, a municipal airport, and the Elk City Daily News served the community. The town hosted the annual Rodeo of Champions in September. Other local attractions included the Anadarko Basin Museum of Natural History and the Old Town Museum Complex, which included the National Route 66 Museum. The Casa Grande Hotel, the Hedlund Motor Company building, the Storm House, and the Whited Grist Mill were listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Miss America 1981 Susan Powell and songwriter James “Jimmy” Webb hail from Elk City.
