Birth of the town ...
Early Creek settlements had been established because of the land, attracting farmers and wild game) and by the Texas Railroad. This is what drew people to the fork of the Canadian Rivers.
Some of the first towns in the area were North Fork Town, and Micco Post Office. With the Missouri, Kansas, and Texas (MKT) Railroad being built through the area in 1871, the railroad built a train station in Eufaula (named by the Creek Indians who came to Oklahoma from the Creek Tribal town of Eufaula, Alabama. Eufaula is from a Muskogee-Creek people word meaning "loosely this place and split into many places", probably referring to an early tribe which moved traditionally to several different locations. The people of North Fork Town and Micco Post Office soon moved there. In some stories North Fork Town burned to the ground in the Civil War, in others, North Fork and Micco Post Office just vanished.
