Just a quick 15 minutes from the heart of metropolitan Tulsa, Sapulpa is the county seat for Creek County and occupies an area over which six nations have flown their flags-Spain, France, England, Mexico, the Choctaw Indian Nation, and the United States. The town's character has been 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 of Alabama. He arrived in Indian Territory in 1850 and established a trading post near the confluence of Polecat and Rock creeks, about one mile south of present-day downtown Sapulpa. The town flourished, and was incorporated in 1989. In 1905, the discovery of oil in Glenpool, six miles southeast, fostered a local oil boom and the city's greatest period of growth.

Today Sapulpa is home to Frankoma Pottery, an internationally renowned firm that offers unique and lovely gift items. Mister Indian's Cowboy Store also offers unique western items for shoppers. Outdoor recreation is available as well, including picnicking, camping and hiking at nearby Heyburn State Park, plus the 18-hole Sapulpa municipal golf course.

Sapulpa's Main Street program is continuing it work, with a focus on ongoing design, economic restructuring, promotion and organization of the historic downtown district. Any questions about the city's unique attractions may be directed to the Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce, (918) 224-0170, or you can check out our website.
