Coke County Cattle, Oil and Gas Center

A pioneer ranching center, settled about 1880. Early land owners included S.M. Conner, W.G. Jameson and W.R. Walker. Dr. J.E. Reed for 50 years was only physician here. R.B. Allen was outstanding civic leader.
     Post office, named for peak nearby, was opened 1890 with Thomas J. Wylie postmaster.
     School (2 mi. SW) was moved here and renamed Silver Peak.
     Oil discovery, 1946, brought drilling, refining, employees' camps, much growth. The town became busy oil-gas center.
     After camps closed, 1966, the population declined.
