OKGenWeb Counties List | Adopt A County in Oklahoma

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 1890, this county was designated simply as "C" County.  By treaty with the Cheyenne and Arapahoe tribes, on 19 April 1892, the county was officially opened to settlers by land rush. 

Also on that date, the county name became Blaine in honor of James Gillespie Blaine, Senator, Speaker of the House, and Republican candidate for President in 1884. 

The County seat is Watonga, named for Wa-ton-gha, Arapaho Chief.
The word means black coyote.
