Here is a history page for Boley.

Here is an unofficial history page for Boley by Brandi Dunn, Shanell Reynolds, and Cora Spencer.

Here are some excerpts from the above history pages:
"Boley was founded in 1903 by T.M Haynes in what was then Creek Indian Territory. A couple of railroad officials, Lake Moore and J. B. Boley, a white man, argued that black people were capable of governing themselves, and that a black town should be established along the Fort Smith and Western Railroad. It was first proposed to name the townsite Barnett, Indian Territory, but there was already a town of that name. Therefore, the town was incorporated in 1905 as Boley, Creek Nation, Indian Territory. The name was changed to Boley, Oklahoma when the State of Oklahoma was formed in 1907."

"On September 22, 1904, a formal opening of the town of Boley was held. Booker T Washington, after a visit to Boley, declared that it was, "The most enterprising, and in many ways the most interesting of the Negro towns in the U.S." "In 1911 the town was able to boast a population of 4,000 residence. The Great Depression in the late 1920's to mid 1930's caused great economic difficulties for Boley. Many residents moved away and the migration of new residents came to a standstill. The Depression dealt Boley a blow that took a long time to recover."
