Guymon history ...
Edward T. "E.T." Guymon
was born in Illinois in 1859. In his early 20s, he came west to McPherson, Kansas, where he worked as a grocery
store clerk. Eventually, Mr. Guymon
acquired an interest in the store.
The Rock Island Railroad began pushing southwest in the spring of 1888 and reached Liberal, Kansas. Mr. Guymon
established the Star Grocery Company in Liberal.
In the 1890s Mr. Guymon
speculated the next town to come up along the future railroad would be west of the Beaver River. He purchased a section of land, which eventually became the original town of Guymon
First named Sanford, the railroad changed the name to avoid confusion with the city of Stratford further down the line. The Rock Island officials telegraphed Guymon
and asked his permission to name the town, Guymon
established the Star Mercantile on the site now occupied by Stanfield Printing. He was the largest stockholder and first president of the City National Bank.
