This file photo taken sometime in June 1889 shows some of Norman's first settlers establishing businesses along Main Street looking east from the railroad tracks. The first business in Norman, used as a grocery store on the day of opening, was founded by Edward Gorton. "Old Joe" and "Joco" were owned by L. J. Edwards and D. R. Boyd, who were here April 22, 1889. A. D. Acres, the first hardware marchant in Norman, answered roll call April 22, 1889. Other early settlers include: J. H. Miller (Deacon), who preached the first sermon in Norman; Edith Burns was the first school teacher; D. W. Marquart was the first postmaster; W. T. Mayfield was the first druggist; J. D. Grigsby was the first attorney; D. L. Larsh was the first furniture dealer; and T. R. Waggoner was Norman's first Mayor.
