History in a Pecan Shell

Oklahoma Lane had been a part of the legendary XIT Ranch before it was broken up. In 1916 five Oklahomans brought their families to the site and named the community after their former home. They were joined by additional Oklahoman families which necessitated the building of two schools in 1917.

The schools, Sunnyside and Knox, were merged in 1921 as a district. An auditorium / gymnasium was added in the 1920s. During the school consolidations in the late 40s, the district was divided among Bovina, Lazbuddie and Farwell schools with the gymnasium becoming a recreation center. It remains the the nucleus of present-day Oklahoma Lane.

Oklahoma Lane doesn't appear on the state map, although it does on detailed county maps. The population has been given as 64 since 1980.
