Okay was a rural post office and school community near Killeen in western Bell County. It had a post office from 1896 to 1899, and the Okay School had thirty-four pupils and one teacher in 1903. The community had two businesses in 1933, and, though the Okay School had closed by the 1940s, in 1946 there was still an Okay school district that contracted out pupils to local rural schools. Okay was not listed on the 1948 county highway map.
