As the famous Merle Haggard song proclaims, we’re proud to be “Okies from Muskogee.” Our history stretches back thousands of years to the native peoples who built their villages and burial mounds along the three rivers, the Arkansas, the Grand and Verdigris. Later, European and American explorers and fur traders built some of the west’s first trading posts along these rivers.

From the rich Native American past to the storied times of the early American expansion, Muskogee has a unique story to tell.
