Founded in 1890 - County Seat: Beaver
Beaver County lies in the Oklahoma Panhandle, a part of the Great Plains proper. It is one of only a few Oklahoma counties in that physiographic region. Kansas borders Beaver County on the north, and Texas on the south; Texas County abuts it on the west, and Harper and Ellis on the east. The concept of Beaver County did not come about until the formation of Cimarron Territory in 1886. That organization included all of No Man's
Land, now the present three counties in the Panhandle. However, there were settlements in the area long before that time.
The land where Beaver County is located has been under several jurisdictions. At one time, it was part of Texas, before Texas became a state of the United States. There was a period of time that it was not part of the Oklahoma Territory but not a separate organized territory. After becoming part of the Oklahoma Territory in 1890, Beaver County (first called Seventh County) covered the entire Oklahoma Panhandle. At statehood
on November 16, 1907, Cimarron County was taken from the western one-third, while Texas County was taken from the middle, leaving Beaver County only in the east. Its borders are now at 100° W (east), 37°N (north), 36.5°N.
