What began as Tulsee Town in 1836 under a sturdy oak tree, which still stands today at 18th and Cheyenne Streets, is today the second largest city in Oklahoma. Ask people to describe Tulsa, and you’ll likely get many different answers. It was a city forever changed by the discovery of oil in 1901. It is home to art deco treasures and nationally renowned museums.
Its African American heritage left its mark, in both the business and music worlds. And it’s a city of nostalgia and special memories for countless Americans due to its location on historic Route 66.
