Heyburn
In Creek County, 8 miles northeast of Bristow

A post office from December 14, 1911 to October 14, 1922. 

Named for Clay Heyburn, long-time local resident.

The small hamlet, Heyburn, was built along the Frisco railroad in the Sunrise School District during the late 1880's and by 1920 there were two general stores, a post office, a railroad depot, a cotton gin and population of approximately 35 people. 

When US Highway 66 was built, about one-half mile north of Heyburn, one of the general stores associated with a gasoline service station moved to the highway and within a few years Heyburn deteriorated and vanished.  The old store on the highway has changed owners several times and changed locations four times, but is still known as the Heyburn Store.
