It was the last known encounter between the United States Cavalry and American Indians in Oklahoma.In the late 1800s, following the Cherokee Strip Land Run, farmers and ranchers began a small settlement in the area. This 1893 land run, combined with the building of the Buffalo and Northwestern Railroad in 1917–20, incentivized many settlers to homestead 160-acre tracts in the area. The community of Freedom - so-named by the postal service - was granted a post office in 1901, with Mrs. Adlah Annis serving as its first postmaster. It wasn't until 1925, however, that Freedom became officially incorporated, with a population of 251.The community of Freedom is known as the smallest certified city (as opposed to a town) in the state of Oklahoma.DemographicsAs of the census of 2000, there were 271 people, 108 households, and 77 families residing in the town.
