An Oil Boom town that at one time was the third most producing oilfield in the world. Currently the town is beginning to re-invent itself with many opportunities on the horizon! The people here are resilient and most noticeably, friendly. There are suprisingly many things in this town to keep oneself entertained. History museums, mansions, world class “children’s museum”, downtown district. Outdoor enthusiasts can surely find something to keep themselves engaged. A school system that has a long outstanding reputation for excellence! The kindergarten school “BLS” is the top reading school in the state for that age group. And Seminole is one of a handful of schools that individualize education for each student. Of course a school would not be complete if did not offer high performing athletics. The Chieftain Football team is known for its success. Opportunity can always be found in a community that is progressive in re-inventing itself.

Seminole is an amazing small city. There is no city in Oklahoma that has the amenities that Seminole has. For example: a fine college; excellent hospital,
one of Oklahoma's best 18 hole golf courses, one of America's largest children's museums with 70,000 annual visitors, Sportsmans Lake with the states best equestrian trails, great wellness center, an animal shelter that adopts out an average of 63 animals a month, oil museum, skate park, boomtown playground, water park, fine public schools with a new high school opening next year, 15 manufacturing plants, good shopping areas, and the nicest people you could find anywhere. And with all this, Seminole folks continue to strive to make Seminole bigger and better.
To others this may be just another small town but it has grown so much over the years! Seminole is such a great town to live in and the community is awesome! Super close together and loves to help out one another. Yes it has its ups and downs but in the end it is worth it!
