Eva Mae Siler and her husband Wimer Forrest Siler were both born on the homesteads their parents claimed during the Land Run of 1889, a few miles west of Moore, Oklahoma. After they married, they bought a farm of their own not far from the farms where they grew up and operated a Grade A dairy farm for nearly 40 years, providing milk to dairies in the area. The Siler home was a gathering place for kids in this area and the basement of their large home was the place for many parties and other events. The Silers were also active in many civic and community endeavors throughout their lives.
The land for this park was once part of the Siler’s farm and in 1974, their neighbors petitioned the city to name this park in honor of W. F. Siler.
