The history of Enid
In the nineteenth century, the United States government resettled American Indian tribes from all parts of the country into Indian Territory. By treaty, the northern portion of what is now Oklahoma was given to the Cherokee Nation as an outlet to hunting grounds in the west. Officially called the Cherokee Outlet, the region became widely known as the Cherokee Strip. Following the Civil War, the government purchased the land and opened the area for settlement. On Sept. 16, 1893, the largest competitive event in history - the Great Land Run - began. By horse, train, wagon and on foot more than 100,000 land-hungry pioneers raced for 40,000 homesteads and the valuable town lots of what is now northwest Oklahoma. Once settlers found their land, they then had to stake their claim at one of four land offices throughout the Outlet, one of them was located in what is now known as Enid. By nightfall, Enid was a town of 10,000 people.
