Perry was established by the Cherokee Strip Land Run of 1893. Perry is centrally located off I-35, 60 miles north of Oklahoma City, 83 miles west of Tulsa and 100 miles south of Wichita.

Named for J.A. Perry, one of the township commissioners, Perry is the county seat of Noble County. At one point Perry contained 110 saloons and gambling houses and was home to the notorious Doolin Gang. Today this friendly historic town is proud of its agricultural history, progressive businesses and home-town values. 

You can learn about the history of the area at the Cherokee Strip Museum, at exit 186 off I-35. This five-acre complex traces the history of the Cherokee Outlet. In addition to the museum, the grounds include outdoor exhibits, an implement building and shaded picnic areas. Also on the grounds is the Rose Hill School, a one-room school house, where many Oklahoma fourth graders experience a living history program each year. 

On the square you will find every-thing your heart desires from antiques to unique. Make a stop by one of our local shops and stay to eat lunch at one of our restaurants. Many events take place on the historic downtown square including the Spring Festival Car and Motorcycle Show and the annual Cherokee Strip Celebration.
