History & History Related Items

Yukon began in 1891 when A.N. Spencer, a rancher from Texas came through the area. He noted there were no towns between El Reno and Oklahoma City when he built a rail line through here. He determined a good spot near El Reno for a town and started one on the spot. He bought property and enlisted the help of his brothers and friends to build up the town. In only a few months, the little town grew a number of homes and a nice group of businesses including a bank. Yukon was incorporated in 1901 though it was still a small town. It has grown considerably through the years bringing in new business, new residents and homes and many organizations and clubs.
