John Weer established a general store in Weer, Indian Territory, in 1889. A post office operated here, 1896-1919, with Weer as postmaster. By 1904 the village had about a dozen businesses consisting of two general stores, a saw mill, a grist mill, a school-church house, a cotton gin, one or more doctors and drug stores, etc. At least four doctors practiced there during the first two decades of the 1900s. The school was relocated to 131st street early in the community's history. Population grew to around 100. Bootleggers dotted the Broken Arrow Creek area. Gambling, knifings and shootings often were reported along the creek and at parties in Weer during Indian Territory and early statehood days.
