A BRIEF HISTORY
Calera began, like so many other small towns in Southeastern Oklahoma, as a stop along the railway in 1872. It was originally called Cale, until John A. Sterrett of the Choctaw Townsite Commission came along and tried to change the name to Sterrett. It didn’t stick, however, and the name was challenged until 1910 when a compromise was finally settled on “Calera.”
Today, Calera spans a total of 2.6 square miles and lies in close proximity to both Durant and Lake Texoma.
Calera Public Schools is home to about 770 students.* The elementary and middle schools are housed in the same building, while the high school sits on a separate campus.
Southeastern Oklahoma State University in nearby Durant is less than 15 minutes away and offers over 60 programs to earn a degree in face-to-face and online formats to over 5,300 students.
