History

A post office was established at Woodford, Indian Territory on February 4, 1884. It was named for Noah L. Woodford, a prominent Chickasaw Indian.[5]

At the time of its founding, Woodford was located in Pickens County, Chickasaw Nation.[6]

A history of Woodford was compiled by the Oklahoma history class at Woodford High School in 1930 (unpublished manuscript).[7]

The population of Woodford had already started to decline by 1930. In 1940, the census enumerated 138 residents. The school district and at least one church closed in the 1950s. The last remaining store closed in the late 1980s. The community still supports a volunteer fire department, however. Woodford is included in the book "Ghost Towns of Oklahoma".[8]
