History of Tulsa, Oklahoma

History of Tulsa, Oklahoma

Smack dab in the middle of “Green Country,” you’ll find the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Located in the northeastern part of the state, Tulsa’s first settlers date back to 1836 when the Ozark Bluff Dwellers (a Native American tribe) found their way to the region via the Trail of Tears. They first broke ground along the eastern side of the Arkansas River, and they decided to call their new home “Tallahassee”—however, today this area is located right in the middle of Downtown Tulsa. It wouldn’t take long until others followed the Ozark Bluff Dwellers’ lead, and soon there were “Five Civilized Tribes,” including the Cherokees, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks and Seminoles, that were calling this place home.
