Edmond History – A Short Version

Edmond is named after Edmond Burdick, a freight agent for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and began humbly in the Unassigned Lands as a coal and watering stop for steam engines at mile marker 103. It was originally known as Summit, being high ground in the Great Plains, and then Edmond Station back in 1887.

Shortly thereafter Edmond got its start as a town, as many local communities did, with the opening of the Unassigned Lands on April 22, 1889, otherwise know as the great Oklahoma land run.

Education became an important founding part of this new town with the Territorial Normal School in 1891 which eventually grew to be the University of Central Oklahoma, UCO. Edmond and UCO continue to grow and prosper with their great partnership.

Edmond’s economy grew from a railroad and agriculture base with the discovery of oil. Add to that more railroad lines, U.S. Highway 66 (Route 66), Highway 77, Interstate 35, neighboring Oklahoma City with Will Rogers World Airport, and you have the easy flow of people and commerce that help a community expand from a town into a city.

Edmond continues to grow today while maintaining its roots as a beautiful place to live, work and play.
