Jones is a town in Oklahoma County, in the Oklahoma City metro
area. Covering 13.662 square miles, present Jones is surrounded on three
sides by Oklahoma City and by the town of Harrah to the east-southeast
and the town of Choctaw to the south-southeast.
Luther F. Aldrich platted the town site on April 22, 1898.
Aldrich, a friend and business associate of Oklahoma City's three-time
mayor Charles G. "Gristmill" Jones, named the town after him, and Jones
later named his eldest son Luther, indicating his esteem for Aldrich.
C. G. Jones, a industrialist and railroad promoter, was
instrumental in bringing the railroad through a town know then as Glaze,
C.G. Jones played a big part in Oklahoma Statehood, and was also
a State Reprehensive, just to name a few of his accomplishments.

Jones is situated just south of the
place that Washington Irving described as "The Ringing of Horses" (site
listed in the National Register of Historic Places, NR 71001081) in his

advantage of the railroad for shipping,
for commuting to work, and for traveling
to Tulsa or Oklahoma City for shopping
and entertainment. Successful promotion

In the early 1940s, during World War II,
Midwest Air Depot (later Tinker Air
Force Base) opened twenty miles south of
Jones and became a prime employment
center. After the war ended, trains no
longer stopped at Jones, commuters
traveled by automobile to the air depot
or Oklahoma City, finding it convenient
to shop in that city before returning
home from work.
The town has grown
steadily during the second half of the
twentieth century from 794 residents in
1960 to 2,270 in 1980, and 2,517 in
2000. The relatively sudden increase in
population indicated that the town had
become a "bedroom" community.
By 2000 approximately half of the
employed residents commuted at least
thirty minutes to jobs in larger towns.
Jones has a mayor-council form of
government, and its public schools
enrolled 1,048 in grades kindergarten
