OKLAHOMA CITY INFORMATION

Located in the heartland of America, Oklahoma City is the capital city of the Sooner State, Oklahoma. The city was settled in 1889 and by 1907 Oklahoma City became the capital of the state. It grew in part because of the discovery of oil within the city in the 1930s. Oklahoma City experienced a decline in population throughout the 1970s and 80s but the downtown area has been redeveloped to include numerous entertainment and culture options for its citizens. Oklahoma is known for its collegiate sports programs, especially football, that includes the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
