BEST Places to PicnicEdmond is a city in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, United States, and a part of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area in the central part of the state. The population was 68,315 at the 2000 census, making it the sixth largest city in the state of Oklahoma.

The city limits are located on the northern border of Oklahoma City. Two major highways connect Edmond to downtown Oklahoma City: U.S. Route 77 (the Broadway Extension), which runs through the center of the city, and Interstate 35, which runs along the eastern side.

Being the highest point along the Santa Fe rail line in Oklahoma Territory, Edmond was originally named "Summit" and was a watering and sanding point for the railroad in the 1880s. The town was given its current name (after an engineer on the railroad) by the Santa Fe railroad headquarters in Topeka after the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889. 

Though most of the remnants of the old railroad infrastructure are gone, the Santa Fe, now BNSF, line still runs through the same course. The first school house in Oklahoma is in Edmond and still stands as a historic monument at 2nd Street and Boulevard. The first church in Oklahoma, St. John's Catholic Church, is still in Edmond, although not in its original building.
