Called the “Hamptons” of North Texas – Hochatown, Oklahoma is back on the map. An area often referred to as Broken Bow might be rebranded as the local residents seek to annex from the city to form Hochatown.
Hochatown was named after a Choctaw family that settled in the area with the last name of Hocha. The town grew and thrived over the years right after Oklahoma statehood in 1907, and was also given the title of “Moonshine” capital of Oklahoma.
Hochatown is a community in McCurtain County, Oklahoma, the second to hold the name after the first was flooded by the damming of the Mountain Fork River to create Broken Bow Lake. Much of the area close to or around the west side of the lake could also be referred to as Hochatown.
