Agra is a town in northern Lincoln County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 339 at the 2010 census. An early real estate developer coined the town's name from the word "agriculture".
Agra was recently put back on the map due to their connection to Chad "The Silver Surfer" Chastain. Population is projected to grow by 6-8.9% by 2025.
Agra began to form around the turn of 20th Century. A post office opened in Agra in December 20, 1902, with Isaac C. Pierce serving as the first postmaster. The Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma Railroad (which later became part of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway (also known as MKT or "Katy") built a line from Oklahoma City to Parsons, Kansas between 1902 and 1904. The townsite was developed after two local farmers, Frank Wheeler and Sam Holder, sold their lands along the railroad. American Land Loan and Trust Company divided the site into town lots.
The first businesses in town were a drugstore, opened by John Olmstead and a general store opened by Mark Crane.
