Description

Duncan’s western heritage began as an early settlement built around a trading post owned by William Duncan along the Chisholm Trail in southwest Oklahoma. Cowboy camps spawned by the cattle drives were plentiful in the area around Duncan because of running streams and lush grasses. The official birth date of Duncan is June 27, 1892, which was marked by the arrival of the first scheduled passenger train on the new Rock Island Railroad, which had recently been completed through Duncan. When Stephens County was created with statehood in 1907, Duncan was named the county seat and quickly outgrew surrounding towns. Duncan prospered with cotton as a main crop. The oil industry quickly brought greater prosperity to Duncan during the 1920s when Stephens County’s oil fields became and remained Oklahoma’s highest producing areas until the 1980s. Earl P. Halliburton established an oil field servicing business in Duncan, which has become a world-wide operation still known as Halliburton.
