Hooker history:

Here is a history page for Hooker.

This area that is now HOoker was basically unwanted until John "Hooker" Threlkeld with some others to raise cattle. He was called Hooker because he was a good roper and could hook the calves out of the herd. After he came here in 1873, the town was named for him. A bad fire on 1 June 1908 burned most of the town but the residents quickly began rebuilding. A Dr. Blackmer and his wife arrived in Hooker in 1914 and he eventually founded the First National Bank. The 1930's saw great troubles for the area with serious drought but, once again, the people of Hooker pulled through their difficulties. The discovery of oil and natural gas in the area during the 1940's brought new people to Hooker and many new businesses, parks, homes and parks were built.
