Beginnings [1]

Yukon was laid out in 1891 by the Spencer brothers who owned the 160 acre site. Frisco, a small town of about 1,000, had been established nearby; but when the railroad was built through Yukon (Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railway Company), most of Frisco's residents moved here. In the 1940s, large flour mills on the eastern edge of the town dominated Yukon's commercial life.
