Located in Choctaw Country, the area this city and county seat are on actually belonged to the Caddo people when it was granted by the U.S. government to the Choctaw tribe in the 1832 Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek. According to accounts from European-American settlers in the area, it got its current name when a hunter, proud of his kill, mounted part of his trophy on a tree near the widely used springs as a challenge to others. When railroad officials went to name the station stop, they were inspired by this local landmark covered in pointy bony growths.

What is the name of this southeast Oklahoma city?
