Ringling was winter residence for one of the Ringling Bros Circus units, so most likely the theater was connected with curcus folk. You should see those great circus themed tomb stones in the local cemetery.

Though it is true Ringling, Oklahoma, owes its origins to Al Ringling (Ringling Bros, Barnum, & Bailey) Circus, the local cemetery has only a couple of headstones reflecting this fact.
Hugo, Oklahoma, is where you will find Showmen’s Rest Cemetery which has numerous circus themed tombstones in honor of all the “carnys” and circus performers buried there. Three world famous rodeo cowboys requested that their final resting place be here also. Click below for a reverent link to Showmen’s Rest-
