For those seeking a place to thrive and
room to grow, the Okmulgee Area is in
the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country
where doors, minds and futures are wide
open. Home to the sovereign nation of the
Muscogee (Creek) tribe, Okmulgee is
abounding in history and cultural diversity.
Okmulgee offers the high quality life-style to be expected in a small town with large city amenities only 35 miles away. Nestled in the mighty oak trees just west of Okmulgee are two beautiful state parks, Okmulgee and Dripping Springs. The east-central Oklahoma landscape provides a backdrop of lush hardwood forests surrounding oxbow lakes, with a meandering river winding through bottomland forests in the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge. If you enjoy a life of outdoor recreation, Okmulgee has it.
Okmulgee Main Street Inc., a 501c-3 non-profit organization, was one of the first three communities to apply for, and be accepted into, the Oklahoma Main Street Program in 1986. When the Program started, there was less than 40% occupancy in lower-level retail space and many of the downtown buildings were falling apart, vacant, and in disrepair. Today, there is 85% occupancy and over 300 rehabilitation projects have taken place in the downtown. New life and excitement has been created in the downtown as well as through numerous special and retail events the Main Street Program plans throughout the year.
There’s still a lot of potential in Downtown Okmulgee, and a lot the Main Street Program wants to focus on for the betterment of our downtown and community. Moving forward, Main Street will be focusing on: upper-floor development, creating new retail and special events for the downtown and community, continued educational and informational projects in Downtown Okmulgee and much more.
