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.

I've been a Seminolian now for 10 years. I would change the public schools here with a mental and generational update. Night life needs to improve for night lovers. Crime would go down, plus employment would go up if nights weren't dead around here, other then Walmart. People would care to live here if it wasn't stuck in old fashion ways. Development is happening but not the mentality to go along with it. People live here, but people aren't living here. They go somewhere else, work somewhere else or find it on social media. Revive this small town for the new world reality and you'll have people coming here, either to visit or move here.
Very family friendly! Always something going on at the Wellness Center and the Schools. The City is a happening growing community that is very exciting to be a part of. New homes and businesses coming in and the future is very bright for this Cities future! Local State College that is fabulous and continues to grow at a rapid pace with new buildings and a new sports complex being built!
