Payne County was opened to settlement in the Oklahoma land run of 1889.  The land run took place April 22, 1889; overnight businesses sprang up, schools and churches were built, and farmers began planting crops.  In December of 1890, the state's land grant university, Oklahoma A&M, was established in Stillwater.  Oklahoma A&M is now Oklahoma State University, which is the county's largest industry.
