Welcome to Tulsa
Oklahoma’s second largest city has Creek roots of establishment in the 1820s but didn’t become a settlement until the 1890s with the inclusion of the railroad. Early city business leaders marketed Tulsa as a premier destination for oil and gas entrepreneurs, which encouraged significant and early investment in Tulsa’s amenities. In addition to the blossoming energy industry, four institutions of higher education were established in Tulsa, providing local and global communities a world class education. To this day, in Tulsa, nature's beauty is matched with an eye for aesthetics, where Art Deco treasures and neighborhoods full of handsome homes seem to grow naturally out of the landscape.
