Located in northwestern Oklahoma, Major County was named after John Charles Major, a local resident and representative to the 1906 Oklahoma Constitutional Convention.  At the turn of the century, the railroad came into the county.  The Enid and Anadarko Railway, the Choctaw Northern Railroad and the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railway were built in Major County at that time.  Gloss Mountain State Park is located northeast of Fairview and offers hiking and wildlife viewing.  In Fairview, the Major County Historical Society Museum features artifacts detailing the area’s history.
