Coalgate originated from coal mining activity and was the site of a mining camp. The majority of miners were migrant workers. In 1883 the son of an Irish immigrant, Patrick Jay Hurley, grew up struggling as a miner in the nearby town of Lehigh, Ok. Hurley befriended an Indian boy who later became principal chief of the Choctaws and was allowed to use the family library for his studies. At age 15 Hurley worked as a ranch hand and at age 18 he acquired a position as caretaker at Bacone College where he attended night classes graduating with an A.B. in 1905. In 1908 Hurley attained a law degree and was retained as a lawyer for the Choctaw tribe. Hurley practiced law before the U S Supreme Court from 1912-1917. With profiteers beckoning, Hurley assisted Choctaws and kept their wealth in Coal mining territory. Around the turn of the century Hurley also followed a military career moving up to Major General during World War II, serving as Sec. Of War, Minister to New Zealand and special ambassador to several countries. In later years living out his life in Santa Fe, NM until his death in 1963, Hurley's endearment to Coal County friends encouraged frequent visits and a strong voice for Indian rights.

Coalgate is a city in and the county seat of Coal County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 2,005 at the 2000 census. Morris W. Turner, a businessman and the mayor of Lubbock, Texas, from 19721974, was born in Coalgate.
