A location by Fullerton called "Buffalo Leap" was thought to be used by aboriginals for driving Buffalo to their deaths as a hunting method. It is also known as "Lover's Leap". Currently it is a part of the Broken Arrow Wilderness Camp located just north of Fullerton.

In 1856, the Fullerton area became part of a Pawnee reservation and was excluded from settlement under the Homestead Act. Randolph Fuller bought large tracts of land when the reservation was auctioned in 1871 and donated some for public use.
