Founded in 1901, Lawton was the last of the Oklahoma boom towns fueled by the land run. The town quickly evolved into a trading center for the large surrounding farm area and nearby army post of Fort Sill. Major government buildings included a city hall, county courthouse and the Lawton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse.
