Older than Oklahoma itself, Tulsa has held many titles: "The Oil Capital of the World," "America's Most Beautiful City," and "The Birthplace of Route 66." Tulsa's history is vast, ranging from the fanciful times that produced affluence and culture still evident in the Art Deco sky scrapers that fill downtown, to the tragic Tulsa Race Riot of 1921. For over a century, Tulsa has not only made history, it has honored and preserved it. Visit the Tulsa Historical Society for much more information on Tulsa's past.
