We have lived in Perry, OK for 20+ years. We love the town and people! This town has a very rich heritage! This is one of the starting places for the Cherokee Strip Landrun. There is a museum with a one-room school house where schools around Oklahoma come to allow their students to have this amazing experience. The downtown area of Perry has very historic buildings along with the new which have replaced older structures which had deteriorated over the 100+ years of their existence. The city itself has several companies which support the population. The only downfall which we have experienced in this city is the continued rise in the city utilities. These utilities are among the highest in Oklahoma. There has been a renewed interest in bringing new businesses into a declining economy which has stimulated some growth in the town. Overall the atmosphere in the town is very welcoming and friendly. This is a wonderful community in which to raise children or even to retire!

The people here are stuck in the small town era. Everyone either works at Ditch Witch or their significant other works there. I would really love to see more money put into downtown to see more business and money coming into the town. Taxes and bills ran by the city is way too expensive for anyone to truly live here, you live paycheck to paycheck. And good luck trying to leave Perry, you can't ever find a job you're qualified for because Perry doesn't give you experience. There needs to be a bigger business to come into this town and give it life and bring more people in.
My immediate neighbors are very friendly. The town is very safe for being located on the interstate.
