Thomas, Oklahoma Real Estate
Thomas was named for William Thomas, who owned a general store and served as postmaster, when the first post office was established at the store on February 12, 1894, while this area was part of Oklahoma Territory. It is located in northeastern Custer County, and is situated at the intersection of State Highways 33 and 47. At the turn of the twenty-first century Thomas had 1,238 citizens and an aldermanic form of town government. The town served as a “bedroom” community with 91.5 percent of workers commuting to jobs in other towns. The weekly Thomas Tribune, established in 1902, continued to be published in the twenty-first century.
Two elementary schools and the Thomas-Fay-Custer unified junior and senior high schools provided education. The Thomas-Hazel Cross Library and the Thomas municipal airport benefited the community. The 2010 census counted 1,181 residents.
