Tulsa County History

 
 

Tulsa County, Oklahoma

Located on the Arkansas River, on lands that were once part of the Creek and Cherokee nations, Tulsa County was created at statehood and took its name from the town of Tulsa in the Creek Nation, Indian Territory. The name, Tulsa, is derived from Tulsey Town, an old Creek settlement in Alabama. Tulsa County is a beautiful combination of hills, bluffs, and wide open prairies, which serve as a dividing line between the Ozark ridges to the East, and the broad plains to the West.

Due to the lush, rolling hills, Tulsa County is often called Oklahoma’s gateway to “Green Country”. The western tip of the county reaches Lake Keystone, while the Arkansas River, in its wide bed, rolls southeastward across the county. Cattle, horse ranches, and rich farmland lay almost within the shadow of urban buildings.

The county boasts Oklahoma’s second largest city, Tulsa - where energy, aviation, finance, computer, and electronics bases are supported by a broad complex of institutes of higher learning. Surrounding this core is a rapidly growing ring of suburban cities, including Broken Arrow, Bixby, Collinsville, Glenpool, Jenks, Mannford, Owasso, Sand Springs and Skiatook. A secondary ring of thriving rural communities includes the towns of Liberty and Sperry. Beyond these areas, and close at hand, Tulsa County is filled with quiet wooded areas, while near downtown Tulsa is the Council Oak Tree, the historic meeting place for the Creek, Cherokee, and Osage nations. From the early Native American inhabitants to the cattlemen, the coming of the railroads, and the oil boom, the history of Tulsa County runs rich and deep.
