History & History Related Items

Broken Arrow history: This page tells some of the history of Broken Arrow and how it received its name.

The Creek Indians came here from Georgia in 1828 even before Oklahoma became a state. They named the area Broken Arrow for the Broken Arrow Creek in Alabama where many of them had lived before coming here. The name was adopted as the official name in 1902 when the community was founded. Once the railroad came through the area, more families moved here to live. Broken Arrow remained mostly rural with ranches and farms around the town. Later, when the Broken Arrow Expressway was created, businesses and real estate developers both arrived and the area began to boom.
