I love the small town community! I have lived in this town for my whole life, and I couldn't recommend it any more than I already do! The people are friendly, the town is beautiful (especially since they are doing a beautifying project now). I am proud to say I am from Purcell, OK!

Purcell is a very down to earth small town located in the south central region of Oklahoma. Known as the heart of Oklahoma for various reasons that go far beyond my days and also my parents. Purcell is a very great place to grow up and if you aren't from there I recommend you take a visit.
I love the town of Purcell. As I mentioned earlier, you are lucky to get out of the house without seeing someone you know. Majority of the population here is so friendly. If I could do life again, and had a choice of where to grow up and live, I would definitely choose Purcell. I will be getting married soon, and we will most likely always live here or somewhere near by. I see Purcell often becoming liked by more people and the population growing and growing.
