The Blaine County Courthouse was built in 1906 and placed on the registry in 1984.
Stop to meditate and appreciate the beauty of the Ferguson Chapel, a 1902 restored Presbyterian Church, located across the street north of the court house.
Three blocks north of the chapel you will find Watonga's historic "White House". The home was built in 1901 by T. B. Ferguson, the 6th Territorial Governor of Oklahoma. It is open for tours Wednesday - Saturday, 10:00 - 4:00. The tours are free, although donations are appreciated. Watonga's first jail is also located on the property and a U.S. Calvary Remount Station, which was originally located west of town on the banks of the North Canadian River.
Enjoy a relaxing lunch at the historic Noble House Restaurant, listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. The restaurant is open Mon. thru Sat. 6 am - 8 pm, and Sunday dinner buffet.
In May 2004, six rooms upstairs were completed for the Noble House Bed & Breakfast.

Today, Roman Nose Resort & Park can be a retreat for you with an 18-hole golf course, camping, hiking, fishing, swimming, horse back riding, bicycling, paddle boats, miniature golf and canoeing. Hungry? Stop in at the General Store On The Lake and enjoy one of their onion-fried hamburgers.
