Tulsa

Tulsa, OK Real EstateTulsa is the second-largest city in the state of Oklahoma and 45th-largest city in the United States. With a population of 391,906 as of the 2010 census, it is the principal municipality of the Tulsa Metropolitan Area, a region with 946,962 (2011) residents in the MSA and 998,438 (2011) in the CSA. Tulsa’s CSA is projected to reach one million in late 2012. The city serves as the county seat of Tulsa County, the most densely populated county in Oklahoma, and extends into Osage, Rogers, and Wagoner counties.

Tulsa was first settled between 1828 and 1836 by the Lochapoka Band of Creek Native American tribe. In 1921, it was the site of the infamous Tulsa Race Riot, one of the largest and most destructive acts of racial violence in the history of the United States. For most of the 20th century, the city held the nickname “Oil Capital of the World” and played a major role as one of the most important hubs for the American oil industry. Tulsa, along with several other cities, claims to be the birthplace of U.S. Route 66 and is also known for its Western Swing music.

What was ultimately to become Tulsa was originally part of Indian Territory and was first settled by the Lochapoka and Creek tribes in 1836. They established a home under a large oak tree at the present day intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and 18th Street, and named their new settlement “Tallasi”, meaning “old town” in the Creek language, which later became “Tulsa”. On January 18, 1898, Tulsa was officially incorporated and elected its first mayor, Edward Calkins.

When Tulsa was a small town near the banks of the Arkansas River in 1901, Tulsa’s first oil well, named Sue Bland No. 1, was established that year. By 1905, the discovery of the large Glenn Pool (located approximately 15 miles south of downtown Tulsa and site of the present day town of Glenpool) prompted a rush of entrepreneurs to the area’s growing number of oil fields; Tulsa’s population swelled to over 140,000 between 1901 and 1930. By 1909, seven years after the discovery of oil in the area, Tulsa’s population had sprouted to 18,000. Known as the “Oil Capital of the World” for most of the 20th century, the city’s success in the energy industry prompted construction booms in the popular Art Deco style of the time. Profits from the oil industry continued through the Great Depression, helping the city’s economy fare better than most in the United States during the 1930s.
