...small town charm....

.... and rugged natural beauty.

A few facts:
  • The Nellie Johnstone oil well, located at Johnstone Park in Bartlesville, was the first flowing commercial well in the world.
  • Oklahoma has the distinction of having the tallest hill in the world, Mount Cavanal, at 1,999 feet.
  • In 1012, Viking explorers visited eastern Oklahoma and left their mark near the town of Heavener.
  • Home to many, many famous actors, actresses, scientists, leaders, and yes - country singer.
