1. Warren's Trading Post Marker
Inscription.  Located near Cache Creek, Oklahoma, just north of the Red River, this trading post was one of several originally constructed by Holland Coffee in the 1830s. These posts were established to trade with the Plains Indians and to take advantage of increased traffic along the Santa Fe and Natchitoches Trails along the Red River.

Coffee's post, purchased by Abel Warren around 1839, featured a stockade surrounding a double-log building with four gun towers at each of its corners. The post was abandoned in the late 1840s.
