historically speaking

H I S T O RY

Enid is said to have been named by a railroad official after a character in Tennyson’s “The Idylls of the King.” At noon on Sept. 16, 1893, hundr eds of thousands of land seekers charged into the Cher okee Outlet seeking free land and a new start in life. They came on horseback and in horse-drawn wagons and buggies. Some r ode trains into the Outlet. There were even a few who made the race on bicycles or on foot. Droves of settlers lined up at the land of fice that after noon and for days afterwar ds to file their claims for land. The land office was located near what is now the site of the Enid Public Library on the south side of the downtown squar e. This original land office building is now part of a permanent display at the Humphrey Heritage V illage on the west side of Gover nment Springs Park. Just acr oss the str eet fr om where the land office once stood is the life-size bronze sculpture of “Boomer” (123 W. Maine). The sculpture depicts a home-seeker astride his galloping horse, his claim stakes in his hand, making the race for a fr ee quarter section of land or a town lot in the 1893 land run. In the beginning Enid struggled to become a city and won. At the tur n of the century, easy access to a railroad was an absolute must if a community was to grow and prosper. The Rock Island Railroad had put its depot in North Enid, even though, before the land run, surveyors designated Enid as the “government town.” The railroad stopped in North Enid rather than Enid and a battle ensued. Then, one night, persons still unknown, sawed through the supports on a Rock Island Railroad trestle southeast of Enid. The weakened supports dumped into a gully the next train that came over the tracks. The event marked the turning point in the dispute and a short time later the railroad agreed to move its depot to Enid. Good times followed. At the height of rail road activity in the 1920s, ther e were more than 20 steam trains every day huf fing and puffing in and out of Enid. Despite the Gr eat Depression of the 1930s, and the roller-coaster ride of several oil booms and busts in the ar ea, Enid has for the most part enjoyed slow but deliberate gr owth over the years. Enid currently has a population approximated at 49,400. During the oil boom of the late 1970s and early 1980s, Enid’s population was more than 51,000. The huge grain elevators on the east side of town have long been Enid landmarks, r eflecting the city’s agricultural roots. ENID • 2012 Newcomers Guide • Page 6

ENID’S HISTORIC TREASURES

Two residential neighborhoods within the City of Enid are designated as historic preservation districts: Kenwood Historic District and Waverley Historic District. Both districts are replete with the popular housing styles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The styles represent design trends that span the initial period of settlement, to Enid's early prominence as an agricultural and commercial center at the turn of the century, to the heady days of the oil boom in the 1910s & 1930s, and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Homes in the two historic districts are spacious, comfortable, affordable, and offer turn-of-the- century embellishments such as wide-front porches, stained-glass windows, hardwood floors, and claw-foot tubs. A walking-tour brochure of both districts is available through the City of Enid Planning Office. Both districts have active neighborhood associations and neighborhoodwatch programs. For more information about these districts, contact Kenwood Historic Neighborhood Association (Becky Cummings at 580-237-5432) or Waverley Historic Neighborhood Association (Shirley Marquardt at 580-234-2197). Minimal restrictions apply when modifying historic homes. Restrictions include street-side (exterior) modifications to the homes. No restrictions apply to inside (interior) modifications. To purchase a home in either district, contact any local realtor. KENWOOD HISTORIC DISTRICT The 160-acre Kenwood tract, claimed by both Maurice A. Wogan & N. E.
