Oklahoma County Data
Select a County Site to visit:

Located in northwestern Oklahoma, Major County was established from the southern part of the territorial Woods County at 1907 statehood. Bounded by Woods and Alfalfa counties on the north, Garfield county on the east, Kingfisher, Blaine and Dewey on the south, and Woodward on the west. Major County has 957.87 square miles of land and water. It is drained by the North Canadian and Cimarron rivers and the Eagle Chief, Griever and Sand creeks. Major County was part of the Cherokee Outlet and opened to non-Indian settlers on September 16, 1893. The county was named for John Charles Major, county resident and representative to the state's 1906 Constitutional Convention. Although the 1893 land opening attracted settlers from many states and foreign countries, the largest concentration to settle in present Major County came from Kansas.

County commissioners rented office space until 1908-1909, when a two-story, brick courthouse was constructed. A larger, stone courthouse was erected in 1928 at a cost of $77,495. In 1984 the Major County courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NR 84003153). The county seat is Marietta
