History & History Related Items

Bristow history:

Bristow was named for Senator Joseph L. Bristow of Kansas. At the time the post office was established on 25 April 1898, he was the Fourth Assistant Postmaster General. Before the post office was opened, it was a trading post in this Indian Territory. Bristow was part of the former Creek Nation Indian Territory and was known as the "Woodland Queen." The town didn't grow much until the St. Louis-San Francisco Railroad came through in July 1898. The townsite was surveyed in 1901 by Charles L. Wood. There were 360 acres in the site. A school had already been opened in 1898 when the settlers first arrived. Another early business was the Territorial Bank opened by A.H. Purdy in 1899. The area was agricultural and suited for cotton growing with several cotton gins in Bristow. Bristow became an oil boom-town in the 1920's, along with many areas of oil-rich Oklahoma.
