Careers, Jobs and Education Resources for: Meers, OK
Meers is a small community located on State Highway 115 in Comanche County, Oklahoma, in the foothills of the Wichita Mountains. Founded as a gold mining town in 1901, it was named for mine operator Andrew J. Meers. The only remaining structure of the original town is the Meers Store & Restaurant, which Food Network named as one of the best in the nation, largely due to its signature Meersburger. In addition, the Meers Store also served as the area post office from March 12, 1902 until February, 1989. Currently, area residents have Lawton mailing addresses. Meers lies on the Meers Fault, and, to monitor seismic activity, the Oklahoma Geological Survey installed a seismograph in the the Meers Store in 1985.
