Nicoma Park Celebrates 50 Year Anniversary

Nicoma Park will be celebrating 50 years of community Saturday May 2. Nicoma Park officially became an incorporated city in 1959, but its history began years before that.

It was during the land run in 1889 that three brothers staked their claim in the area presently known as Nicoma Park, although at that time it was called Oak Hill.

The Founder’s Day Celebration will kick off in front of city hall on Nichols Drive at 9 a.m., and will continue to run through 11 p.m.
