Beaver County is a county located in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. As of 2000, the population is 5,857. Its county seat is Beaver[1].

The land where Beaver County is located has been under several jurisdictions. At one time, it was part of Texas before Texas became a state of the United States. There was a period of time that it was not part of the Oklahoma Territory but not a separate organized territory. After becoming part of the Oklahoma Territory in 1890, Beaver County (first called Seventh County) covered the entire Oklahoma Panhandle. At statehood in 1907, Cimarron County was taken from the western one-third, while Texas County was taken from the middle, leaving Beaver County only in the east. [1] Its borders are now at 100°W (east), 37°N (north), 36.5°N (south), and approximately 100.8°W (west).
