History

The Warr Acres housing addition and Warr Acres Second Addition was developed in 1937 by Clyde B. Warr.[3] An addition that would later form part of the city of Warr Acres, Putnam City was developed by state lawmaker Israel Putnam in 1909.[3]

The city was formed when the residents of 11 additions, including Putnam City, petitioned to incorporate in February 1948.[3] The city of Bethany filed suit, but lost in a Oklahoma Supreme Court decision.[3]

Shopping districts appeared along MacArthur Avenue in the 1960s and 1970s.[3] By 1979, the town had grown to three square miles after annexing several residential developments.[3]
