History

Oklahoma City is the state capital of Oklahoma. Its central location is the crossroads for several major interstates including Highways 35, 4 0, 44, 235, and 240.

Oklahoma City was incorporated on July 15, 1890. From 1889 to the 1910s city leaders and builders turned the railroad watering stop into a bustling commercial and transportation hub. The population nearly doubled between 1890 and 1900, which led to a small housing boom. The 1920s witnessed further economic development. The Capitol sits above an oil pool and by 1935 the Oklahoma City oil field had produced 409 million barrels of crude oil, and ninety-five oil industry companies employed twelve thousand.

Today, Oklahoma City offers numerous attractions such as the Oklahoma History Center, the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Oklahoma City National Memorial Center, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, the Omniplex Science Museum, the National Softball Hall of Fame, the Forty-fifth Infantry Division Museum, and the Oklahoma City Zoological Park.

Bricktown in downtown Oklahoma City is the venue for a movie theater, restaurants, retail shops, and business offices. The Cox Convention Center, the Ford Center, and the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark provide locales for sporting and other recreational events.
