Geary is a city in Blaine and Canadian counties in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. The population was 1,280 at the 2010 census. The town was named for Edmund Guerrier, a scout and an interpreter for the U.S. Army.HistoryThe area occupied by the present city of Geary was previously part of the Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation, until it was opened in April, 1892 for settlement by non-Indians. Shuffle Huff and his son, William, filed several land claims in the area and sold two quarter sections to a land development company. A community was begun about 1.5miles northwest of its present location. Settlers moved the town to the present site to be located on the proposed route of the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad line that was to be built west from El Reno.Edmund Guerriere, of French - Cheyenne ancestry and a former Army scout and interpreter, had acquired a land allotment about 3miles northeast of the town. According to the Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History and Culture, the town name was spelled "Geary" because the new immigrants had difficulty spelling and pronouncing the original name. The Geary post office was established October 12, 1892.Quickly becoming a trade center for the agricultural area that surrounded it, Geary was established as a 'first-class city" in Oklahoma Territory in 1902. The population had grown to 2,561 in that year. That number declined to 1,565 by the time of statehood in 1907.GeographyGeary is located in southern Blaine County and northwestern Canadian County at . The city limits extend southeast along U.S. Route 281 8mi from the center of town to Exit 108 on Interstate 40. From this point it is east to downtown Oklahoma City.
