The town was created by Burton Barnes, who wrote the first survey for the city and sold the certificates of the land he surveyed. The Ponca Nation, which retained its original land grant in 1879, played an important role in the development of the Marland Oil Company into a city. Also in the Marland Grand Home is the 101 Ranch Museum, which tells the story of cowboy and rodeo greats who lived in and around the area from the late 19th century to the early 1900s. This museum also highlights the life and work of oil tycoon E.W. Marlands, who later became one of Oklahoma's most successful oil and gas tycoons and founder of North America's largest oil company, the American Petroleum Institute.
