History & History Related Items

Gotebo history:

In the Spring of 1902, the Rock Island Railroad was laid from Chickasha to Mangum and one of the scattered stations along the line was that of Gotebo. Soon after, a few shacks and tents began to appear and a town-site was laid out called Harrison.
In 1902, lots were sold at a drawing and a few modern buildings were erected. City Hall was the first building built. A Mr. McIntosh was elected the first mayor and Mr. William DeLesdernier was appointed the first postmaster. Drs. Funk and Voyles were the practicing physicians.
The original town-site was located where the old business part now stands. In 1904, a new town-site was established and was called Gotebo, after the Kiowa Indian. Later by petition, the people of Harrison were admitted into the corporation of Gotebo and the name Harrison was abandoned. Gotebo was incorporated in 1905.
