A little history ...

Did you know that Yukon, one of the most vibrant cities in Oklahoma, with a rich history dating back to 1891? This historic city was founded by none other than A. N. Spencer, a cattleman from Texas. Yukon was named after the legendary Yukon River in Alaska and has always been a hub of activity for both the locals and visitors.

Historically, Yukon was recognized as an urban center for local farmers and served as the site of a large milling operation. To this day, the Yukon’s Best Flour sign is widely recognized and restored to its former glory in 2013. This iconic sign brightly shines at night atop the historical Route 66 flour mill and is largely responsible for the prosperity of the town.
