Founded after the 1891 Land Run, Chandler grew quickly as one of Oklahoma’s oil boomtowns. It was named to honor George Chandler, the first assistant secretary of the interior. At the time of the Land Run, all Oklahoma counties were identified by a letter. The residents of each county later voted on a name.
Our county was known as “County A.” In 1892 County A went to the polls to choose a name. The 3 selections were Springer, Lincoln, and Sauk and Fox. The results of that election provided an eloquent answer to the age-old question “What’s in a name?”
Lincoln County has a mild climate with 4 distinct seasons. The average growing season is 220 days. The average daily temperature is 61 degrees. January is the coldest month with an average daily temperature of 37 degrees and lows near zero. Average annual rainfall is 37 inches.
The Lincoln County Fair is held annually in Chandler in late summer. Other local and area events include the Bell Cow Run, Chandler Ice Cream Festival, 4th of July Celebration, Annual Open Rodeo, Veteran’s Day Celebration and others.
The Route 66 Interpretive Center located on Route 66 was once the Historic Chandler National Guard Armory. Now it is the Community Space and the most Convenient Conference and Exhibition Center between Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
