Skiatook History

Skiatook was founded in 1872 by William C. Rogers. It was named after a local Indian. However, some believe that the town derived its name from a Cherokee term describing a vast tract of land or a large man. The first post office of the town was established in the 1880s. At that time it was known as Ski-a-took. In 1892, the name was given its present name. The Midland Valley Railroad reached the area in 1904. The town was incorporated in 1905 and A.E. Townsend became the first mayor of Skiatook.
