The Phoenix City Directory 1916
Boynton 1916 Directory of Boynton The city of Boynton is located on the Frisco Railway nineteen miles southeast of Muskogee. It is but fourteen years old, having been first laid out and platted by Colonel Finley in 1902. In 1910 it had a population of 680 and today 1800 would be a conservative estimate of the population of this bustling and enterprising city. Boynton has two banks, The First National and The Bank of Boynton, with combined deposits of about $230,000.00. In educational matters Boynton takes high rank, and its corps of teachers are among the best equipped in the state. In religious matters it is well represented, having five church edifices, three of brick and two of frame, and the denominations represented are the United Presbyterian, M. E., M. E. South, Baptist, German Lutheran and Christian, the latter holding services in the Masonic Hall. It also has a live newspaper, "The Index," published weekly. Among the larger manufacturing interests are the Francis Vitric Brick Co., which employs about 100 men, with a capacity of 200,000 paving bricks per day, and the Boynton Refining Co., with an output of 12,000 barrels per day, four general merchandise, two large hardware houses, a fine furniture store and farm implement store, while every other line of business and the professions are well represented. Boynton is supplied with an unlimited amount of natural gas, furnished by the Boynton Gas & Electric Co., which uses 1000,000,000 cubic feet per day. This amply supplies the demands for heating, lighting, and cooking and the supply can readily be doubled if needed. The city has its own waterworks system, which furnishes and ample supply at all times. A cotton gin is also in operation during the season and a fully equipped smelter will soon be in successful operation. Altogether Boynton is one of the most progressive cities in the state, and its future is full of brilliant promise.
