I grew up in Okmulgee. It is a poor community, it has "bad parts" and other stereotypical aspects of a small town, but it has its perks. When you know people, it feels like a big tight knit community. You can't go to Walmart without seeing somebody you know or drive down Main Street without waving to a passing vehicle. The people here are mostly friendly. Muscogee (Creek) Nation is located here which brings in a lot of jobs, money, and resources for citizens here. I wish there were more things for young people to do to keep them out of trouble. We used to have a rollerskating rink. they should bring that back! However, with two colleges being located here, more young people are taking charge and seeing change. Downtown is becoming a charming little place to be. Okmulgee is getting better every year, it could be the next Tulsa! Overall, Okmulgee is a town with a lot of charm, character and potential, you just have to open your mind to it.

The town of Okmulgee Oklahoma is a small rural town sitting on major highway 75, 30 miles south of Tulsa, OK. Full of friendly and warm people, you will never find someone not willing to take time out of their day to help. Okmulgee is home to the Creek nation Indian capitol, which makes up the majority of residences. For all the good that Okmulgee has, it has its negatives. Poor economy, low income jobs, low employment and high drug use. A town once full of pride and major companies, now finds itself struggling to hold onto native born citizens. Major overhauls and changes in the local government needs to be made. New business growth, and economical programs pushed to rally the pride of this city. Programs for people struggling with addiction. Okmulgee has the make to be a great city. Just needs a spark of passion to make this city shine.
Just moved to this town for college. It’s not a bad place to live but there’s not really good places for jobs. Community is great and they love doing events for the people that live around here and it’s a pretty diverse group but if you want to go on major adventures or shopping you have to venture out 30 miles. One thing I’d like to see happen here is for higher paying jobs to come around so there can be a better average income in the community that way we can put forth more effort into making this town a safe and more fun place to live and learn in.
