Deer Park History

Simeon Henry West founded Deer Park in 1892. West was a farmer, retired legislator, and adventurer from Illinois who began exploring the west. He named the town after the large number of deer that traveled across the Gulf Plains regularly. In 1893, Deer Park’s post office opened. It was closed in 1919 and later reopened in 1930 after an oil boom re-vitalized an almost-abandoned city. Shell Oil Company came to the area in 1928, bringing with it many workers and residents, leading to Deer Park opening a school system and re-establishing itself as a growing town.
