Situated in the southeastern part of Oklahoma, Altus is the seat of Jackson County, and home to Altus Air Force Base, Western Oklahoma State College, and Southwest Technology Center. The community was founded in 1886, and originally named Frazer. Relocated due to an 1891 flood, the city was renamed Altus, which refers to a high place in Latin.
