Later in August, Oklahoma Indian Nations Pow Wow tribes from across the region will gather for an annual celebration of Native American culture. Once on the Oklahoma Territory-Indian Territory border, this is where the Concho Indian Agency is located, where Cheyenne Arapaho children and children from other tribes attend school. When the Rock Island Railroad began construction of the first railway line from Oklahoma to Kansas City, Kansas, this land was opened to the public.
Near Fort Reno, a settlement called Reno City was born, which quickly decided to move closer to the railroad, but not far from the Rock Island Railroad.
The site, initially known as Camp Near Cheyenne, was named Fort Reno in honor of Major General Jesse L. Reno, who was killed in the Civil War. Sheridan named the fort after him, and the name of the city was taken from the nearby Fort Nevada military post, marked "el" to distinguish the community from the new town of Reno City, which was five miles northeast of El Reno and just a few miles north of the Rock Island Railroad tracks. Founded in 1889, El Reno was named after the American Civil War, in memory of its first inhabitant, Major Jesse L., who was killed.
In addition, the city was one of two locations selected for a district administration in the run-up to the Land Lottery in 1901. El Reno was the final choice and it was built as the location of the post office, which was built in June of the same year. After the second flood, it moved to its current location and changed its name to "El Reno."
The land that was formerly allotted was the last land that was opened to white settlers. As the settlers moved more people to the new El Reno settlement, additional unallocated land was opened to the settlers.
When Route 66 was built, El Reno was committed to its many, and business development was greatly encouraged by its proximity to the highway and its convenient location on the Oklahoma-Texas border.
One of the longest running editions was the El Reno American, which began around 1901 and lasted until 1988. In the early days of this organ there were two newspapers, the El Reno Daily News and The Reno Gazette. In the mid-1970s, the population was expanded to include men of all ages, renamed the Federal Correctional Institution of Reno, and opened to the public in 1975.
On April 19, 1892, the area of the county was expanded by about 325 square miles when it was agreed that the area of the county would be expanded by 100 square miles, creating a new city of El Reno and two other cities.
The division stretched from Herlington, Kansas, to Galveston, Texas, and Tucumcari, New Mexico. The western part included Cheyenne and Arapaho land that had been drained in April 1892, but the eastern part was opened for settlement on the 98th meridian that divided El Reno. This unallocated land cleared the way for the settlement, which quickly became known as the "Great Oklahoma Land Run."
Buildings and pioneering companies wasted no time in uprooting and relocating the entire city they called El Reno. The Caddo Springs Stage Station was founded and became the first stage of the Great Oklahoma Land Run, and in 1889 the construction of a railway line from the Oklahoma and Texas Railroad to Oklahoma City was actively pursued. In 1892, the line between El Nevada and Oklahoma City was completed and the pioneering operation did not waste a moment.
Although the existing Canadian District Court was built in the late 1980s, the old El Reno stable building, built in 1906, is still in South Evans while the new building is being built. The stables will be used to build new buildings as part of the construction of a new courthouse on the corner of Canadian and Evans Streets in downtown El Nevada.
