Overview


The first session of the 59th Congress introduced the consideration of the statehood bill, providing for the admission of two states: one to be composed of the Indian and Oklahoma Territories, and the other formed by uniting Arizona and New Mexico Territories.

On the morning of November 16, 1907, more than 10,000 residents from Oklahoma City traveled to Guthrie to celebrate their recently won statehood. Using over 200 images combined with well-documented facts from city directories, newspapers, and first-hand accounts, this book chronicles Oklahoma City‚’s unique history from its beginnings in the early 20th century as Packingtown to the
Depression Era. Also featured are many glimpses into the city‚’s everyday past‚—scenes of residents enjoying a day at Belle Isle, the State Fair, and on the streets of downtown‚—and a section on Henry Samuel Overholser, the Father of Oklahoma City.
