Mitchell DeClerck has been in continuous existence for over 120 years having been established on September 16, 1893. On that day lawyer Charles Parker rode the train to Enid from Caldwell, Kansas making the land run into the Cherokee outlet with 100,000 other folks. Parker was later joined by Percy C. Simons, who also made the run into Oklahoma but served as the Attorney General of Oklahoma Territory until 1906.
