Founded in 1893
Grant County, located in north-central Oklahoma, lies in the most northern tier of counties bordered on the north by the state of Kansas. Surrounded by Kay County on the east, Garfield County on the south, and Alfalfa County on the west, Grant County has a total of 1,003.61 squares miles of land and water. Situated in the Red Bed Plains and in the Great
Salt Plains, the area is noted as a wheat-growing region. The grassy plains are drained by the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River, which flows from west to east in the southern half of the county. North-south tributaries such as Pond, Deer, Osage, and Crooked creeks flow into the Salt Fork. The Chikaskia River (pronounced chi-KAS-kee-uh) originates
in the county's northeastern corner, crossing west to east into Kay County. The county was named after Pres. Ulysses S. Grant.
