Washita Arapaho Mennonite (General Conference Mennonite) Mission Station, Oklahoma, located 5 miles west and 2 south of Corn on the Washita River, was started among Arapaho Indians in July 1889 by J. J. Kliewer. Washita was originally called Shelly. When a large Mennonite settlement originated in this area the Indians gradually moved away. J. J. Kliewer became a minister of the Bergthal Mennonite Church which arose here, and the General Conference Mission Board discontinued this station around 1900.
