Altus, Oklahoma 1901
Located in the southwestern part of the state (JacksonCounty), Altus was founded in 1886 in a settlement about 2.5 miles west of our present city, and originally named Frazer. After the town was almost washed away by a flood, the citizens moved their belongings, started over in the present site and changed the name to Altus, which means "altitude" or "high place" in Latin. Altus is home to Altus AFB and a world class company Bar-S Foods.
Altus Air Force Base is home to the 97th Air Mobility Wing, whose mission is to operate the Air Education and Training Command's strategic airlift and aerial refueling flying training schools. Altus AFB is home to the C-17 Globemaster III, C-5 Galaxy (the largest US military plane), KC-135 Stratotanker and simulator museum
Nature provided a head start in making Altus one of the most pleasant places to live in this part of the country. Warm, sunny days provide a great opportunity for you to enjoy the activities such as shopping, visiting our museums, golfing, baseball, basketball, swimming, hiking and exploring the mountains, or just relaxing at the area parks, including nearby Quartz Mountain State Park. (LakeLugart-Altus).
