Founded on February 1, 1892, as a post office, Gage later became the location of a station on the Hutchinson, Oklahoma, and Gulf Railroad line. When the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe took over this line on January 1, 1901, they changed the name to Basil. In 1937, the Basil and Cleveland mail routes were combined and the Basil post office was closed.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
