LaKemp, Oklahoma was platted in 1908 and a post office was established July 26, 1909. In 1919 when a branch of the Santa Fe Railroad was built westward from Shattuck through the northern Texas Panhandle, it drew to it Oklahoma towns and villages including LaKemp. When the town was moved to the railroad, it became Booker, Texas. Booker was platted August 2, 1917 by an official of the Santa Fe Railway, Thomas C. Spearman, of Cook County, Illinois.

Walk continued thru newer subdivision.


Back at City Park we were across the street from City Hall.
