History

A post office was established at Healdton, Indian Territory on February 26, 1883. It was named for Charles H. Heald, a prominent resident.[6] At the time of its founding, Healdton was located in Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation.[7]

Healdton is located in western Carter County at 34°13′54″N 97°29′4″W / 34.23167°N 97.48444°W / 34.23167; -97.48444 (34.231557, -97.484454).[8] Oklahoma State Highway 76 passes through the city, leading south 5 miles (8 km) to U.S. Route 70, west of Wilson and north 5 miles (8 km) to Oklahoma State Highway 53. Ardmore, the Carter County seat, is 23 miles (37 km) to the east via OK-76 and US-70.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Healdton has a total area of 14.4 square miles (37.3 km2), of which 14.1 square miles (36.6 km2) is land and 0.27 square miles (0.7 km2), or 1.86%, is water.[5]

Geology

The Healdton Field, encompassing Healdton and located in the western portion of Carter County, produces from the Pennsylvanian Healdton sands of the Hoxbar Group and the Ordovician massive carbonate Arbuckle Group. The field is located on the "Healdton uplift", a northwest-southeast trending anticline, which formed with the Wichita Orogeny, and is eight miles long and up to three miles wide. This was followed by deposition of the Healdton sandstones and shales on pre-Pennsylvanian eroded rocks and subsequent folding during the Arbuckle Orogeny. A prospector named Palmer drilled a shallow well, 425 feet, near an oil seep in the 1890s but Federal Law prohibited oil development on "Indian lands" until the early 1900s. Therefore, the discovery of the field is credited to the drilling of No. 1 Wirt Franklin in 1913.
