About Chandler

Founded after the 1891 Land Run, Chandler grew quickly as one of Oklahoma's oil boom towns. Our name was requested to honor George Chandler, the First Assistant Secretary of the Interior. The request was approved by President Benjamin Harrison.

Chandler is the County Seat of Lincoln County - thus the location of the courthouse, sheriff's office, and jail.

At the time of the 1891 Land Run, all Oklahoma counties were identified by a letter. The residents of each county later voted on a name. Our county was known as "County A." On November 8, 1892 the citizens of County A went to the polls to choose a name. The three selections were Springer, Lincoln, and Sauk & Fox. The results of that election provided an eloquent answer to the age old question "What's in a Name?"

Highlights from the Past
Chandler's main street is a continuation of Historic Highway 66 that crosses the United States. From the West Coast to Chicago, Lincoln County was the only county that paid to have the road paved.


Bell Cow Lake Bell Cow Lake is the largest of Chandler's Lakes. It has great fishing, trails for horseback riding, a sand beach and many great places to camp. The lake has four developed areas which offer R.V. hookups, boat ramps, fishing docks, volley ball courts, equestrian trails, pavillions and ample parking.
Rainbow Park Rainbow Park is located on Highway 66 across from the fire station. The park has a pavillion and a playground area. Because the park is adjacent to the city swimming pool and Williams Baseball Field, this park is a popular place to spend a sunny afternoon.
Tilghman Park Tilghman Park, the largest of Chandler's Parks has Tennis Courts, a Volley Ball area, a large playground, and a Pavillion. Picnic Tables are found scattered under the park's large trees. R.V. Hookups are located on the south side of the park and can be used for a $10 daily fee.
