The community is named after Zacariah Thacker, a pioneer from Arkansas. It is believed that he was headed for the Amarillo, Texas area, but he camped one night at Wolf Hollow Creek in Indian Territory and remained there until his death a few years later. Thacker befriended some of the local Indians and together they farmed a very productive corn crop. Before long, many people began settling in the area.After Thacker's death in 1887, the community relocated from its original site near Addington Bend, to its present location. The main reason behind the move was to be closer to the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway. A depot was constructed and the first grocery store, built by Oce McCage, opened across from it. Soon after, a school, churches, and a post office were constructed. Thackerville had a dirt main street with board walks that connected store porches.
