TitleKansas City, Missouri: Its History and Its People, 1808-1908
NotesO. K. creek in the early days of Westport was known as McGee creek. Preston Hamilton, owner of a store and feed yard at one of the principal crossings, is responsible for the change of name. On the entrance to the wagon yard, Hamilton displayed this sign, O. K., Drive In. From this legend the freighters called the storm O. K. creek.
