Select a County Site to visit:
County was created in 1890 following the run into The Unassigned Lands
and the organization of Oklahoma Territory. A strip of land was
later added to the western edge of the county after the land run of
1892. First known as County "Five," it was later named to honor
the town of Kingfisher, which had been settled overnight after the land
run of April 22, 1889, and named for a settler who operated a trading
station on the
Chisholm Trail. The Central Hotel in Kingfisher housed the first
county officials until 1892, when Abraham Seay and William Grimes built
a three-story brick structure which they in turn leased to the
county. When it was destroyed by fire in 1901, county officials
had a four-story brick building constructed at the cost of
$29,990. Kingfisher County is located 45 miles northwest of
Oklahoma City, and encompasses 906 square miles of wide prairie.
