We admit it; we really love Moore, OK. We are lucky to live in a place where community means something. We have great access to city life in Oklahoma City, but can relax in a quieter pace. Moore was originally founded in 1889. According to local historians, the town’s original name was “Verbeck” by the railroad company. However, a railroad employee named Al Moore lived in a boxcar at the camp and had difficulty receiving his mail. He painted his name – “Moore” – on a board and nailed it on the boxcar. When a postmaster was appointed, he continued to call the settlement Moore. When the town incorporated in 1893 the name was legalized. Way to go Al!! (Now don’t start painting your name on things) In the 1960’s additional territory was annexed and Moore became an official city in 1962. The decade of the 60’s saw Moore’s population soar. The close proximity and easy access to the state’s Capitol city on the north and the University of Oklahoma to the south make Moore a great place to live.
