HISTORY


In the early 1960’s Frank L. Richards had a vision of the future growth of Lawton and he began purchasing property in Lawton for future development of homes, apartments, and commercial properties.  This was basically in Sections 27, 34, and 35 of 2 North, 11 West Comanche County, Oklahoma.   At that time East Gore was a gravel road and the bridge to cross East Cache Creek was a single lane banister bridge with and oak timber deck. 


In 1965 Frank and his son Nick J. moved to Lawton and began an aggressive building and development program in the Sullivan Village Addition, Sungate Addition, Regal Estates Addition, Carriage Hills Addition and Sherwood Village mobile home community.  Rapid growth east of Cache Creek and between East Lee and NE Cache Road brought about the improvement of the bridge over Cache Creek and the four lane and five lane improvement to East Gore Boulevard.  This part of Lawton has a close proximity to Fort Sill and Richards Companies were providing quality, affordable housing for the men and women stationed at Fort Sill.  Along with the housing growth has come Elementary Schools and the MacArthur Junior and Senior High school.  Fire Station number 6 built on SE 45th Street.  Numerous churches and senior care facilities have been built in the area.  Banks, restaurants, convenience stores, fuel vendors, and a Grocery store has built in the area.  As the area continues to grow, it now time for additional services to be built to serve the people that live here.  The two Richards that have brought much of this growth to fruition have gotten old and retired and are ready to sell their holdings to a younger group of builders and developers who want to create quality housing and investments for the community and for their families.
