Toledo was first settled in 1866 by John Graham, his son Joseph, and William Mackey, who claimed land made available by the Homestead Act. It was called "Graham's Landing" until a post office was established two years later; the Grahams then chose to name it after Toledo, Ohio, which had been their home for years before they headed west.
The city had its first mayor by 1893 when it was made the county seat of the newly established Lincoln County, and was incorporated in 1905.
