Mead Homes for Sale Real Estate

Two Towns, One Heartbeat

Imagine sitting on the front porch as a thunderstorm rolls in. The heavy rains saturate the earth, promising life to the surrounding land. The trees in your yard sway and bend with the wind, and the downpour creates a misty curtain over the distant landscape.

If you can see all of this, you must be living in the country. No skyscrapers blocking your view or drab industrial buildings polluting the air. Just God’s green earth and the peace of knowing you’re always safe when you’re home.

That’s life in Mead and Silo—two towns that share more than just a school district. They share the promise of providing families with a safe haven to raise their children and a place they’ll always call home.

According to Sperling’s Best Places (Mead, Silo).

A BRIEF HISTORY

Originally dubbed “Double Springs,” Mead began when a small band of Creeks settled near the neighboring springs in 1866. The town moved about a mile northeast to its current location when the railroad came through and was named after its first postmaster, C. W. Meade.

Silo’s origin story is a little less clear. It began when a post office was opened in 1893 and was a known stop along the Butterfield Stage route. Not much else is known, however, such as where it earned its name or by whom.

Today, both towns span less than a mile combined, with Mead coming in at .35 mi.2 and Silo at .50 mi.2.

EDUCATION

Mead and Silo are both small enough and close enough to share the same school district, located in Silo. The Silo Independent School District consists of four schools, including: Silo Early Childhood Center, Silo Elementary School, Joan Impson Middle School, and Silo High School.

Southeastern Oklahoma State University in nearby Durant is less than 20 minutes away and offers over 60 programs to earn a degree in face-to-face and online formats to over 5,300 students.
