History & History Related Items

Cashion history:

Began as the Town of Downs on a hill 3 miles south of Cimarron River. The first branchline of the Santa Fe and Rock Island Railroads met just 1/2 mile south of the hill at the county line. Downs, which had been declared the State Capital (for a day vetoed by the Territorial Governor), was taken down and moved down the hill to the railroad at what became Cashion.

Named for Roy Cashion of Hennessy Oklahoma, Roy passed through the area on his way to join the Rough Riders in the Spanish American War. Cashion was killed (shot in head) in the famous charge on San Juan Hill, Cuba. He is believed to be the first Oklahoman to die in battle on foreign soil.

Cashion (the town) was established and boomed with growth reaching its peak by 1915-16. At this time both railroads were running two trains a day into town from both Guthrie (Santa Fe) and from Kingfisher (Rock Island). An oil boom brought in the "Cashion Pool" which was considered the largest single pool ever discovered, running from south of Cashion to near Kansas just west of Enid.

Incorporated in 1900, Cashion was known as "The Town too Tough to die", While the neighboring towns of Downs, Wandell, Big Four, Lockridge, Navina, Reeding, Columbia and Lincoln Town all folded up and vanished in the great depression and shortly thereafter, Cashion hung on. Today, the town is again on the grow and business opportunities abound. Some 30 new homes are built each year as new residents commute the 15-20 miles to Oklahoma City, Guthrie or Kingfisher.
The incorporation date of Cashion: April 1900

New Park (On Blvd.) new baseball fields (3) with stands and concessions - Antique Tractor grounds in New Park.

Planned programs include a 30+ acre park with a Civic Center, Nature area, creek and trail system, a pond stocked with fish
Close to Oklahoma City, yet far into the country, Just a 15 minute drive to major Malls on the north fringe of the City.

With the current growth rate, there is an abundance of opportunity for retail investment, food service, hardware and other industry. If the growth continues it is safe to say Cashion may surpass its neighboring towns in size within a generation!
