Jones is a town in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, and a part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. The population was 2,692 at the 2010 census.
Jones was plotted as a townsite on April 22, 1898 by Luther F. Aldrich before the St. Louis and Oklahoma City Railroad constructed a line from Sapulpa to Oklahoma City. Aldrich named the town after his friend and business associate, Charles G. "Gristmill" Jones who was a three-time mayor of Oklahoma City. Jones later named his eldest son Luther.
Jones is located just south of the place that Washington Irving described as "The Ringing of Horses" in the book A Tour on the Prairies (1835).
Jones was incorporated as a city on January 4, 1909. The 1910 Census counted the population at 163.
In December 2007, a devastating ice storm hit much of Oklahoma. It resulted in a fire at Jones High School, causing the school to burn to the ground. The new school was finished in 2010, after taking three years to build. The new school has a commons area and a theatre for drama club.
