History of the area

The area was first known as the Big Prairie with groves of trees that appeared as islands in a lake of water. By the early 1900ís, efforts were begun to drain the water. The result was rich farm land that now yields wheat, cotton, soybeans and other crops.

Originally founded in 1942, the City of Miner was incorporated in 1951. Originally known as Minner in honor of one of the original landowners residing there, the railroad, when erecting a sign to mark their switching station, inadvertently left out the "n" in the town's name and Minner became Miner Switch. In 1951, thanks to modern day pioneer William Howard McGill, the City of Miner was incorporated.
The incorporation date of Miner: 1951
