    Highway 77 Through the Arbuckle Mountains in the 1920's, a convict labor crew was brought to the Arbuckles to build a highway across the mountains. The camp that the convicts lived in was similar to any army bivouac camp. Located near Turner Falls, this camp served the needs of the convict work crew building the highway through some of the roughest country in Oklahoma. Below are some rare photos of the labor camp. It took 2 years to build the 6 mile stretch of road.

    I was thinking of a different Horseshoe Curve, a rail curve around mountains in Pennsylvania, just outside of Altoona. We went there once when visiting family friends in Ebensburg.
