Welcome To
Cordell, Ok
I get this question all the time. Here is the short answer:

Why is Cordell OK now called New Cordell?
A post office named Cordell was established in the same year in Young's store. In 1897, A. J. Cordell and J. C. Harrell convinced Young to move his store to the present site, where water was more plentiful and of better quality than in Old Cordell. The new location became known as New Cordell. Although, most locals simply call their town "Cordell".

The Cordell Senior Citizens Center is an important asset in our community. They serve not only seniors, but they are also open for lunch to anyone wanting to enjoy great food at a very resonable price.


They also provide Meals-On-Wheels for those citizens who may need that service.

However, in these times of uncertainty and rising prices the Center is in urgent need of support. Consider helping out at the Center or maybe take a turn at delivering meals.Of course they could also use financial help as well.

On the rare chance you may need some sort of health care, a small-town hospital can make a difference and here's why.
