Kingfisher 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.
