Edmond an old railway town like many others in Oklahomo. It got its start in 1889 when the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway were laid. The train station which was built along the rail way was named Edmond Station after Edmond Burdick a dedicated freight agent. Today little stories like this are kept alive through the Edmond Historical Society & Museum. There are other great stories and sights that can be seen while visiting the Historic Museum. One of the strangest sights was a huge well dug right off the rail way. Built in 1888 before the invention of modern excavation tools. The well was a gas sation for trains. Along with the well there was a coaling station. The Water & coal was the fuel for steam engines. The well was 128 feet down into the ground over 10 stories deep, it was 30 feet wide at the top. The wall that supported the water on the outside was 2 feet thick and simple rocks. To build this well it took 110 carloads of rocks. Now this isn’t cars like we have today but train cars full of rocks.
