Apache is a town in Caddo County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 1,444 at the 2010 census.[2]

History

Before opening the Kiowa, Comanche, and Apache Reservation on August 1, 1901, for unrestricted settlement by non-Indians, Land Lottery Director William A. Richards had recommended setting aside the land now occupied by Apache as a townsite. He had expected the community would be named "Richards" in his honor. Instead, officials of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway (Rock Island) named the community Apache. A land run for lots in Apache was held on August 6, 1901. According to the Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture, five lumberyards and six saloons opened for business within hours after the run. A tent served as a market for groceries.[6]

An election of the town's first city officials was held in an outdoor meeting on the evening of August 6, 1901. E. E. Blake was elected as mayor and F. E. Richey as city clerk. Appointed officials included I. F. Crow, city attorney, and Sam Wass, city marshal. Apache was incorporated on July 22, 1902.[6]
