History & History Related Items

Ramona was founded in 1899, and was a stop on the Santa-Fe Railroad. It was the fourth-to-the-last stop if you were heading south. Ramona became an oil town, even becoming larger than Tulsa for a period. Unfortunately, the oil stopped flowing, and the population is now half of what it was in the oil days. The town was originally called Bon-Ton, but the name was changed to Ramona in honor of the Helen Hunt Jackson novel. The first church established was the Ramona Friends Church, still in existence, in 1902.

The town, although fledgling, is a good little town. We desperately need economic growth to survive. The buildings on Fourth Street (the nearest thing we have to a main street) are a little worse for the wear, but are not so much so that they cannot be fixed up. A business would do well to move into the area, as we are conveniently located between Tulsa and Bartlesville (26 Mi. and 17 Mi., respectively) on Highway 75. A Wal-Mart distribution center is being built just north of town, which will improve our finances significantly. We have a few small businesses, such as a Bar-B-Que joint, a hair-dresser, a Sinclair gas station, Daylight Donuts, Bill's Tire Repair, and the town-famous Ward's Garage. There are several churches in Ramona, a history museum, a High School, a medical clinic (the first one in the state to receive a million-dollar endowment), a post office, a fire station, a city hall, a small park, and some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet.
