Bixby, established in 1893, quieted down after an early history of "outlaws" and became a prosperous agricultural center. It was named for Tams Bixby, chairman of the Dawes Commission which was created by Congress in 1983 to close out the affairs of the Five Civilized Tribes. The purpose of the commission was to exchange lands of the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole Indian tribes for new land allotments in Oklahoma. [1, 2]
