About EnidAlthough some sources hold that the town's name came from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's “Idylls of the King,” more colorful stories credit the naming of Enid to cattle drovers who turned the “Dine” sign on the cook's tent upside down.

In an effort to encourage the Rock Island Railroad to stop at Enid rather than its rival North Enid, an unknown party sawed through the supports on a railroad trestle southeast of town. While attempting to pass through Enid on its usual route, the train fell into a gully, thereby making its first official “stop” at Enid. Enid later was included on the route.
