Sapulpa Area Information


 

Sapulpa is the county seat for Creek County and is located in northeast Oklahoma´s Green Country. It occupies an area over which six nations have flown their flags ? Spain, France, England, Mexico, the Choctaw Indian Nation, and the United States. The character of Sapulpa was shaped by three historic factors ? Indians, railroads, and oil.

Chief Sapulpa, the area´s first permanent settler, was a full-blood lower Creek Indian of the Kasihta Tribe in Osocheetown, Alabama. He arrived in Indian Territory about 1850 and established a trading post near the confluence of Polecat and Rock creeks (about one mile south of present day downtown Sapulpa). When the Atlantic and Pacific railroad line extended to the area in 1886, it was called "Sapulpa Station" in honor of Chief Sapulpa who had befriended the railway workers.

The treaty of 1866 between the Creek Nation and the United States provided for the establishment of post offices in the territory. In 1889 a post office named Sapulpa was opened and the town was incorporated in 1898. In 1905 the discovery of oil in Glenpool, six miles southeast of Sapulpa, fostered the greatest period of growth. The oil boom, the Frisco railroad, and the addition of two brick and four glass plants all combined to transform Sapulpa from a sleepy little village in Indian Territory to a bustling community of 20,000 by the mid-1920s. Most of the buildings in downtown Sapulpa were erected during this boom period

 

This historic east-west route that once carried "Okies" west to greener pastures has been revived. "Get your kicks on Route 66" is once again the theme song for thousands of Americans and International visitors. Throughout the year, Sapulpa plays host to visitors experiencing the nostalgia and myth of Route 66, affectionately known as the Mother Road. Sapulpa´s historic downtown district is in the heart of historic Route 66 and was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2003. Sapulpa has accomplished small community distinction just 15 minutes from the heart of metropolitan Tulsa.

Sapulpa became an official Main Street community in 1990. A visionary group of individuals recognized that Sapulpa had a rich downtown that was not fully contributing to the economic development of the community. In the past 13 years, $10 million in private and public funds were put into downtown brick and motor projects.

The Sapulpa Main Street program will continue its economic development work to ensure the heart of the city, Sapulpa´s distinguishing characteristic, remains vital. The current focus is on continued recruitment of diversified, specialized retail, development of upper floor spaces into housing and offices, and image promotion.

This is all accomplished through a national four-point approach focused on quality and long-term improvement. The four points are: Design, Economic Restructuring, Promotion and Organization.
