Oklahoma City Information

Oklahoma is a state of the south-central United States. Oklahoma was incorporated as the 46th state in 1907. First discovered by the Spanish, it was opened to settlement in 1889. The western part was formed in 1890 as the Oklahoma Territory, which was merged with the adjoining Indian Territory to form the present state boundaries. The Dust Bowl of the 1930s forced many farmers to move west as migrant laborers. Oklahoma City is the capital and the largest city. Population estimated as: 3,540,000.
