History of Edmond

Edmond, Oklahoma is located just north of Oklahoma City.

Washington Irving explored the original site of Edmond in 1832. The opening of the Chisholm Cattle Trail in 1867 lead the region to become a haven for cattle ranchers. In 1866, a route was surveyed for the Santa Fe railroad from Arkansas City to Gainesville, TX. This route went right through the future site of Edmond, which became a water well for steam engines on this new rail road route.

One passenger and one freight train traveled each way through Edmond, every day. Edmond was considered one of the most important stops from Arkansas City to Gainesville because it was a place to stop for food. Today, Edmond has over 150 restaurants and is considered a favorite dining spot. The Santa Fe officially named the station Edmond in honor of Edmond Burdick, a Santa Fe traveling freight agent, in 1887.

Edmond’s economic base grew due to the railroad, the normal school, and a surrounding agricultural area. The local economy boomed with the discovery of oil in the West Edmond Field during the 1930s and 1940s. Edmond experienced further growth with Highway 66 (Route 66) and Highway 77 in the late 1920s, and proximity to Interstate 35 from the early 1960s.

Edmond has grown into a large city but maintains its heritage and small hometown personality. Today, Edmond has a population of 85,084 and is the sixth largest city in the state.
