Tulsa history

Tulsa began as a settlement of Creek Indians during the migration of tribes from the southeastern United States. The settlement was refer to as "Tulasi," a Creek Indian word meaning "old town" and in the 1890s, a trading post in the village became a post office under the name "Tulsey Town." In 1882, the railroad brought white settlers and Tulsa, became a cattle-shipping center. Then, in 1901, the nearby town of Red Fork became the site of a giant oil deposit find. Four years later, Glenpool, another nearby town, began producing oil as well. A boomtown flush with oil money, Tulsa became the "Oil Capital of the World" in the 1920s, a title it relinquished to Houston following the "Oil Bust" of 1982-84. City leaders worked to transition the city away from a petroleum-based economy, luring blue collar factory jobs as well as Internet and telecommunications firms to Tulsa during the 1990s.

In 1921, the Tulsa Race Riot occurred, one of the nation's worst acts of racial violence. The Greenwood District of north Tulsa was burned, and as many as 300 persons were left dead, a large majority black. The Oklahoma Legislature passed laws in 2001 aimed at revitalizing Greenwood, setting up a scholarship fund for college-bound descendants of riot victims and appropriating $2 million for a riot memorial.

Important towns around Tulsa include Berryhill, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Catoosa, Claremore, Collinsville, Coweta, Glenpool, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs, Sapulpa, and Skiatook.

Famous people from Tulsa include several musicians: Joe Diffie, Ronnie Dunn, Jeff Carson, the GAP Band, David Gates, Hanson, Gus Hardin, Leon Russell, and Bob Wills. The radio commentator Paul Harvey and the late Senator Patrick Moynihan were born in Tulsa. Actors from Tulsa include Tony Randall, Alfre Woodard, Mary Kay Place, Gary Busey, Gailard Sartain and Jeanne Tripplehorn. Important families and people in the history of Tulsa include the Phillips family (founders of Phillips Petroleum), Thomas Gilcrease, and Charles Page. Tulsa is served by Tulsa International Airport. Road-wise it is served by Interstate 44, US 412, US 64, and US 75.
