Choctaw physically became a community in 1890, but was not given actual status as a town until 1893 when a territorial governor was appointed for Oklahoma. It officially celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1993. In 1950, Choctaw was in an agricultural area. It had a population of 355 in that year. Despite its name, the town has no cultural, historical or governmental ties to the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. The tribal headquarters and casino are located in the southeastern part of the state. Before Choctaw was chartered, the area included a part of William McClure's 7C Ranch and was known for a trading post and a camping spot near a spring.
A community emerged on the east 80 acres of land John S. Muzzy claimed in the 1889 land run and received a postal designation in early 1890. The town incorporated in April 1904. When Oklahoma became a state in 1907, the town had 230 residents, four churches, a school, a bank, a newspaper and telephone service. By 1909, the town had three gins. The population grew very little during the Great Depression.
Arts & Culture are no small item in Choctaw! The owners of the Old Germany Restaurant, a business opened in March 1976, and worked with the city and chamber of commerce to hold an annual, eight-day Oktoberfest event. The event has traditionally featured German heritage food, beer, wine and dancing. In April 2018, Old Germany Restaurant closed its doors for good after 42 years of business and announced the annual Oktoberfest event would be cancelled for good, as well. Two months after closing, the Old Germany Restaurant reopened its doors after finding investors to help keep the business open. It also hosted the annual Oktoberfest for a 4-day run. The town also has a small museum dedicated to beer steins.
