Roger Mills County was part of the original Cheyenne-Arapaho Reservation and opened for white settlement by a Land Run on April 19, 1892. Part of present-day Roger Mills County was known as F County, and part was originally in E County (which became old Day County) The people chose the name Roger Mills in a November 1893 election, honoring Roger Q. Mills, a popular Texas statesman. Cheyenne, the county seat, was named for the Cheyenne Indians and had a population of 50 by nightfall on April 19, 1892.
