      city, seat (1907) of Canadian county, central Oklahoma, U.S., on the North Canadian River, immediately west of Oklahoma City. Settled in 1889 when the Rock Island Railroad (Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad Company) arrived, the town was named for old Fort Reno (established as a fort in 1875), itself named for Union General Jesse L. Reno, who died at the Battle of Antietam (Antietam, Battle of) during the Civil War. The restored fort now houses a livestock experiment station and the Chisholm Trail Museum.

      The opening in 1901 of the Kiowa-Apache-Comanche Indian reservation to white settlement further stimulated the city's development.

Redlands Community College was opened in 1938. A federal correctional centre, a state game farm, and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Agency and School are nearby. The Canadian County Historical Society maintains a museum of Indian and pioneer artifacts in the city. Inc. 1893. Pop. (1990) 15,414; (2000) 16,212.
