Product Overview

Kingfisher and Kingfisher County showcases images from a special time, 1889 to just before World War II, and special places, small towns on the edge of the Great Plains. Sometimes called "the Buckle of the Wheat Belt," the city of Kingfisher is the county seat and lies about 45 minutes northwest of Oklahoma City near the center of the state. Other towns, Hennessey, Loyal, Cashion, Dover, and Okarche, still exist and thrive, although many other small towns in the county are only memories. The eastern portion of the county was opened by the land run of 1889, and the western portion, originally part of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Reservation, was opened by the land run of 1892. The growth and harvesting of hard red winter wheat has long been central to the economy of the area. Photographs of Cheyenne Indians, floods, wheat harvesting, small-town stores, and the people of the area are only some of the materials that preserve showing the way life was in Kingfisher and Kingfisher County.
