Tulsa was first settled in the 1830s by the Creek Native American tribe. In 1921, it was the site of the infamous Tulsa Race Riot, one of the largest and most destructive acts of racial violence in the history of the United States.[8] For most of the 20th century, the city held the nickname "Oil Capital of the World" and played a major role as one of the most important hubs for the American oil industry.[9] Tulsa has been credited as the birthplace of Route 66[10] and the home of Western Swing music.[11] The Creek are an American Indian people originally from the southeastern United States, also known by their original name Muscogee (or Muskogee), the name they use to identify themselves today. ...

What was ultimately to become Tulsa was originally part of Indian Territory and was first settled by the Lochapoka and Creek tribes in 1836.[19] They established a home under a large oak tree at the present day intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and 18th Street, and named their new settlement "Tallasi", meaning "old town" in the Creek language, which later became "Tulsa".[19] On January 18, 1898, Tulsa was officially incorporated and elected its first mayor, Edward Calkins.[20] This article traces the history of Tulsa, part of present day Oklahoma. ...

A small town near the banks of the Arkansas River in 1901, Tulsa's first oil well, named Sue Bland No. 1,[20] was established that year. By 1905, the discovery of the large Glenn Pool nearby (site of the present day town of Glenpool) prompted a rush of entrepreneurs to the area's growing number of oil fields; Tulsa's population swelled to over 140,000 between 1901 and 1930.[21] Known as the "Oil Capital of the World" for most of the 20th century, the city's success in the energy industry prompted construction booms in the popular Art Deco style of the time.[9] Profits from the oil industry continued through the Great Depression, helping the city's economy fare better than most in the United States during the 1930s.[22] The Arkansas River flows through Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. ...

In the early 20th century, Tulsa was home to "Black Wall Street," one of the most prosperous African American communities in the United States at the time.[8] Located in the Greenwood neighborhood, it was the site of the Tulsa Race Riot, one of the nation's costliest acts of racial violence and civil disorder.[8] Sixteen hours of rioting on May 31 and June 1, 1921 resulted in over 800 people admitted to local hospitals with injuries, an estimated 10,000 left homeless, 35 city blocks composed of 1,256 residences destroyed by fire, and $1.8 million in property damage.[8] Twenty-three black and 16 white citizens were reported killed, but estimates suggest as many as 300, mostly blacks, died.[8] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (2016x3024, 3525 KB) File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...

In 1927, Tulsa businessman Cyrus Avery, known as the "Father of Route 66,"[23] began his campaign to create a road linking Chicago to California by establishing the U.S. Highway 66 Association in Tulsa, earning the city the nickname the "Birthplace of Route 66."[10] Once completed, Route 66 took an important role in Tulsa's development as the city served as a popular rest stop for travelers, who were greeted by Route 66 icons such as the Meadow Gold Sign and the Blue Whale of Catoosa. During this period, Bob Wills and his group The Texas Playboys began their long performing stint at a small ballroom in downtown Tulsa. In 1935, Cain's Ballroom became the base for the group,[11] which is largely credited for creating Western Swing music. The venue continued to attract famous musicians through its history, and is still in operation today.[11] For the remainder of the mid-20th century, a master plan called for the construction of parks, churches, museums, rose gardens, improved infrastructure, and increased national advertising.[9] The Spavinaw Dam, built during this era to accommodate the city's water needs, was considered one of the largest public works projects of the era.[24] In the 1950s, Time magazine dubbed Tulsa "America's Most Beautiful City."[9] Cyrus Stevens Avery (1871–1963) was known as the Father of Route 66. He created the route while appointed to a federal board to create the Federal Highway System, then pushed for the establishment of the U.S. Highway 66 Association to pave and promote the highway. ...

A national recession greatly affected the city's economy in 1982, as areas of Texas and Oklahoma heavily dependent on oil witnessed freefall in gas prices and a mass exodus of oil industries.[25] Tulsa, heavily dependent on the oil industry, was one of the hardest hit cities by the fall of oil prices.[25] By 1992, the state's economy had fully recovered,[25] but leaders would attempt to expand into sectors unrelated to oil and energy.


In 2003, the "Vision 2025" program was approved by voters with the purpose of enhancing and revitalizing Tulsa's infrastructure and tourism industry. The keystone project of the initiative, the BOK Center, was designed to be a home for the city's minor league hockey and arena football teams, as well as a venue for major concerts and conventions. The multi-purpose arena, designed by famed architect Cesar Pelli, broke ground in 2005 and completion is expected in 2008.[26] In 2004, the city was selected as the site for the world's largest free-standing statue, to be constructed on Holmes Peak near downtown.[27] Originally slated for completion in 2007, developers in 2007 pledged an unveiling in 2011, with construction beginning in late 2007,[27] though no construction has begun as of 2008. If built, the statue, dubbed "The American", would stand 217 feet (66 m), or about 60 feet (18 m) taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York City.[28] The 21-story monument is anticipated by developers to be a national icon similar to the Gateway Arch, Mount Rushmore, and the Statue of Liberty.[29] Vision 2025 was a proposition to increase Tulsa countys sales tax rate in order to fund capital improvements. ...

The Tulsa City Hall serves as the base for most city government functions.

A mayor-council government has been in place in Tulsa since 1989 when the city converted from a city commission government deemed wasteful and less efficient.[30] Since the change, Tulsa mayors have been given more power in accordance with a strong mayoral system and have greater control of a more consolidated array of governmental branches.[30] Plurality voting is used to elect mayors, who serve a term in office of four years. The present mayor of Tulsa is Kathryn Taylor, a Democrat, who previously served as Secretary of Commerce and Tourism for the state of Oklahoma. Taylor unseated Republican William LaFortune in his reelection campaign of April 2006.

A city councilor from each of the city's nine council districts is elected every two years, each serving a term of two years. Councilors are elected from their own respective districts based on a plurality voting system, and serve on the Tulsa City Council. Roscoe Turner of District Three currently serves as the council chairman along with Vice Chairman John Eagleton of District Seven. As a whole, the council acts as the legislative body of city government, which aims to pass laws, approve the city budget, and manage efficiency in city government. In accordance with the mayor-council form of government, the Tulsa City Council and the office of the Mayor coordinate in city government operations. A third body of the government, the city auditor, is elected independently of the city council and mayor to ensure that the auditor can act in an objective manner. This position serves a term of two years, and the current city auditor is Phil Wood, a Democrat.[30] The city serves as the seat of county government for Tulsa County, and lies mostly within Oklahoma's 1st congressional district, with its far northwestern areas in southern Osage County in Oklahoma's 3rd congressional district.

Geography

The Tulsa skyline as viewed from Turkey Mountain.

Tulsa is located in the northeastern corner of Oklahoma, 99 miles (159 km) northeast of Oklahoma City; situated between the edge of the Great Plains and the foot of the Ozark Mountains in a generally forested region of rolling hills. The city touches the eastern extent of the Cross Timbers, an ecoregion of forest and prairie transitioning from the drier plains of the west to the wetter forests of the east.[35] With a wetter climate than points westward, Tulsa serves as a gateway to "Green Country", a popular and official designation for northeast Oklahoma that stems from the region's green vegetation and relatively high amount of hills and lakes compared to central and western areas of Oklahoma,[36] which lie largely in the drier Great Plains region of the Central United States. Northeastern Oklahoma is the most topographically diverse part of the state, containing seven of Oklahoma's 11 ecoregions[37] and more than half of its state parks.[38] The region encompasses 30 lakes or reservoirs[39] and borders the neighboring states of Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas. The geographic coordinates of the city of Tulsa are 36°7′53″N, 95°56′14″W (36.131294, -95.937332),[40] with an elevation of 213 meters (700 ft) above sea level.

Topography

The city is split by the prominent Arkansas River, which flows in a wide, sandy-bottomed channel. Its flow through the Tulsa area is controlled by upstream flood control reservoirs, but its width and depth can vary widely throughout the year, such as during periods of high rainfall or severe drought. However, a low-water dam maintains a full channel at all times in the area adjacent to downtown Tulsa.[41] Heavily wooded and with abundant parks and water areas, the city holds several prominent hills with names such as "Shadow Mountain" and "Turkey Mountain", which create varied terrain, especially in its southern portions. While its central and northern sections are generally flat to gently undulating, the Osage Hills extension into the northwestern part of the city further varies the landscape.

A building boom in the early 20th century gave Tulsa one of the largest concentrations of art deco architecture in the United States.[50] Most commonly in the zigzag and streamline styles,[22] the city's art deco is dotted throughout its older neighborhoods, primarily in downtown and midtown. A collection of large art deco structures such as the Mid-Continent Tower, the Boston Avenue Methodist Church, and the Philtower, have attracted events promoting preservation and architectural interest. In 2001, Tulsa served as the host city for the International Art Deco Congress, a semiannual event designed to promote art deco architecture internationally.[51] Building booms in the 1970s and 80s gave the city a larger base of contemporary architectural styles. The BOK Tower, built during this period, is the tallest building in Oklahoma and the surrounding states of Missouri, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Kansas.[52] Tulsa also has the second-, third-, and fourth-tallest buildings in the state, including the Cityplex Tower, which is located apart from the city's central business district.[53] One of the area's unique architectural complexes, Oral Roberts University, is built in a Post-Modern Futuristic style, incorporating bright gold structures with sharp, jetting edges and clear geometric shapes. The BOK Center, Tulsa's new arena, incorporates many of the city's most prominent themes, including Native American, art deco, and contemporary architectural styles.[54] Intended to be an architectural icon,[55] the building was designed by César Pelli, the architect of the famous Petronas Towers in Malaysia.
