Fort Gibson Reviews
I grew up in Ft. Gibson. The people in this town are genuinely wonderful. They are kind, generous, and easy-going people that absolutely love their lives here. Everyone knows each other and would give the shirt off their back for you, without hesitation. Even though I moved away (went to college and ended up in the city afterwards), everyone in town still checks up on me. I was diagnosed with cancer some years back and I got more support from my hometown than I did my current one. This is the perfect town for raising kids, and everywhere you go in town, you run into friends and familiar faces. If your looking for a community that is genuinely good, honest and loving, look no further. The schools are exemplary, they care about every student and their individual needs. I wouldn't be who I am today, if I hadn't grown up in Ft. Gibson. This town is everything a family could possibly ask for, plus alot more. I am so proud to call Ft. Gibson my hometown!
In the small town of Fort Gibson it may seem like one blinks and they are already passing through it, however there is so much more to our town than what it seems. There are boutiques, restaurants, and stores all over that offer jobs for working students. The town is upcoming with new restaurants being built and started not to mention one of the town's favorite downtown boutique/hair salon is Studio 110. The whole community is very supportive of everyone in it. For example, our school mascot Jaren Shelton over the summer was diagnosed with Stage 1 Testicular Cancer and the entire community raised money on his behalf for treatment. Some of the best times would have the best the Car Show and Burn out during the summer, along with the Corn Festival! Nothing really tops our Hilldale rivalry games though during football and basketball! I wouldn't trade having grown up in this town for anywhere else. And that is coming from someone who would kill to live in New York, City New York.
If you are looking to move to Fort Gibson here's what you need to know. First, the housing market here is driven exclusively by the school. A house that would cost $100,000 in Muskogee will cost $250,000 to $300,000 in Fort Gibson, only because of the school. The town makes their money by the police. If you get pulled over you will get a ticket. Even if they have to invent something. The city counsel / board is full of older citizens that hold grudges and choose what they will and won't allow, even if you play by the rules. City fees are outrageous, they don't maintain their streets (unless your a city councilman), and outright force their citizens to maintain the streets or they issue citations saying it's endangerment. If you want to raise a family in Fort Gibson, do yourself a favor and save your money and time. Go to Muskogee, Hilldale, or Okay if you have to be close. If not, look in Broken Arrow, Coweta, Wagoner, Jenks, Bixby, Glenpool, or even Taft (a prison town).
