History Then & Now
YUKON was founded in 1891 by A.N. Spencer, a cattleman from Texas and named after the Yukon River in Alaska. Historically Yukon served as an urban center for local farmers and an area of a large milling operation. Yukon’s Best Flour sign is still widely recognized. It was restored in 2013 and it brightly shines at night on the top of the iconic flour mill on historical Rt 66.
YUKON OK has been experiencing spectacular growth for over a decade. Still, with such dynamic growth, the community retained a small-town atmosphere. It prides itself to be friendly and family-oriented.
