Cushing, Oklahoma is in Payne County. Once a part of the Sac and Fox Reservation, the town began when the land was opened for settlement in 1891. William Little, who had been a government trader for the tribe prior to the and run, built the first house there to establish his claim, then laid out town lots. A post office was established in 1891, and named for Marshall Cushing, private secretary to U.S. Postmaster General John Wanamaker.
