Lovell Pioneers
Lovell Pioneers

Submitted by: Bob Chada
Dedicated to the Pioneers and Homesteaders
of the Land in and around the community of
Lovell, Oklahoma during the 1898-1948 era
This memorial is graciously dedicated in honor of homesteaders and other pioneer settlers of this area in recognition of their faith and courage to explore the unknown and to endure the great depression, two world wars, droughts and untold hardships; and in appreciation of the heritage of joy and thanksgiving they passed on to succeeding generations descendants of these pioneer families respectfully reaffirm our ancestors' reverence for freedom, family, and commitment to democracy.
These early settlers were among thousands of recent descendants of many foreign countries and varying nationalities who migrated to this area of Oklahoma seeking a new way of life on untilled land.
Some of these settlers homesteaded their land after filing a claim following the "run of 1889." Many acquired their farms or home sites at a later date. Either by Purchase or trade, living here with other homesteaders and pioneers to make a living and raise their families together they became the "Pioneer Families of the Lovell Community and the surrounding trade area" by their commitment. The foundation for our modern society was built.
This memorial was made possible by descendants and friends of these Pioneer Settlers who suffered many hardships to develop the area for those who followed.
These names appear on the back.

Lovell, Oklahoma in the 1920's
Lovell, first known as Perth, began as a U. S. Post Office (May 22, 1889) when the unassigned lands opened for settlement. The town became an agricultural trade center after the railroad route (later Santa Fe) from Enid to Guthrie opened in 1902. School began in 1905.
The name of the town was changed to Lovell in 1906 in Honor of James W. Lovell who developed the townsite. In 1907, at the time of statehood, Lovell had several stores, two cotton gins, two grain elevators, lumber yards, a bank, a hotel, a feed store, a large blacksmith shop, and a population of over two hundred. In the early 1920's oil was discovered near lovell and in the rich Roxana field (three miles northwest) soon many persons moved to Lovell. Bus and freight service increased and stores and homes were added.
In January 1928, fire destroyed eleven businesses on the east side of main street. Little rebuilding was done. The great depression and WW II followed.
The Lovell school closed in 1955 and the Post Office in 1957. Many kin of pioneer families live in the Lovell area.
