Enid, Oklahoma origins begin with a railroad station in the summer of 1889. M.A. Low, a Rock Island official, visited the railroad station, then under construction, and inquired about its name. At that time, it was called Skeleton. Disliking the original name, he renamed the station Enid after a character in Alfred Lord Tennyson's Idylls of the King. L

During the opening of the Cherokee Outlet in the Land Run of 1893, Enid was the location of a land office which is now preserved in the Humphrey Heritage Village, part of the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center. This area was known as Government Enid or South Enid. North Enid, Oklahoma, also previously known as Railroad Enid, Station of Enid, or Old Enid, was the original town site endorsed by the government.
