Oklahoma City history:

Oklahoma City was born overnight on April 22, 1889 when unassigned prairie lands in the Oklahoma Territory were opened for settlement. Over 10,000 claims for homesteads were made in one afternoon. It was designated the state capital, following Guthrie, in 1910. Though the city expanded from day one, it really hit "paydirt" on December 4, 1928 when the first oil well within the city limits struck a gusher. Not only the economy was changed after that day. The skyline changed also, with oil well derricks springing up everywhere. One of the most famous gushers was the Mary Sudik which blew for 11 days and spewed oil as far away as 15 miles. Today, there are still producing wells on the state capital grounds. Not only the oil fields contribution to the economy blossomed, but also the related fields in manufacturing.

In 1964, the downtown area of OKC, as the city is known affectionately by its residents, was scheduled for re-development. The result is a beautiful and striking area with greenhouses, lakes, water concourses, and landscaped hills among its features.
