Q&A - February 24, 2017

Word is getting out that Okmulgee is actually rising. It’s more than talk! When people come to town, who haven’t visited Okmulgee in a couple of years, they can’t believe the progress they see. Because we are here every day and regularly see the improvements downtown and throughout the community, we can easily become oblivious to the truly astonishing things happing around us. With major renovation projects happening simultaneously in downtown Okmulgee, 2017 is shaping up to be a landmark year for this community.

Q&A - February 3, 2017

At the heart of Okmulgee Rising is the beautiful collection of historic buildings in downtown Okmulgee. These graceful and stately sentinels of our past have quietly stood watch over our town for generations and are now ushering in a renewed sense of hope for our beleaguered community. They remind us of this town’s prosperous history, and as these buildings are being rediscovered, they are telling us that our best days are still ahead.
