    Afton is a small town of about 1000 (down 5% since 2000) located along old Route 66 and by Interstate 44 in Ottawa County in the Northeastern part of Oklahoma. Afton began in 1871 when a railroad was built through the area to the town of Vinita. The town was reportedly named either after the daughter of one of the surveyors for the railroad or the Robert Burns Poem "Flow Gently Sweet Afton". Regardless both the girl and the poem honored the Afton River in Scotland. The railroad and agriculture played important roles in the beginning of the town and the development of Route 66 brought many tourists through the town. The town began to decline when Interstate 44 bypassed the town in 1957. Today the small town is a popular stop for those driving the old Route 66.

    One of the great places to stop in Afton is the museum honoring Route 66 and vintage automobiles.
