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.
