It may have been known as Pottsville, for D. M. Potts, who owned a local store, as well. The name Lone Oak came from a large tree in the area. Lone Oak was incorporated from 1979 to 2008. Parts of historical Lone Oak have been annexed by Paducah. The Lone Oak post office operated from 1892 until 1908.
