The history of Wynnewood Oklahoma

In 1874 a small settlement existed in Indian Territory (modern day  Oklahoma) where the stage coach line crossed the Washita River; this  settlement was known as Cherokee Crossing, or Cherokee Town.  When the  railroad planned to come through about 4 miles south, a merchant there,  John Walner, moved his family and store by ox team to a location on the  railroad.

In 1886, this new community was named "Walner", but in  1887, it was renamed "Wynnewood" by the railroad  men, after their  hometown in Pennsylvania.
