History & History Related Items

Perkins history:

Perkins was named for a Congressman from Kansas, Bishop Walden Perkins, who was able to work out the necessary government red tape to open a post office here. But Perkins was not the first name for this township. It began on 22 April 1889, the day of the Oklahoma Land Run. Joseph Wert was the "winner" for the claim for 160 acres. He donated 40 acres for a town. First the little town was called Cimarron, then Italy and finally renamed Perkins.
