The town of Seminole was established in 1906,
named after the Seminole Indian Tribe
who inhabited this region after signing
the goverment treaty in the mid 1800's.
It was incorporated as a city on
December 26, 1924.
OIL WAS DISCOVERED
In the mid-1920s when oil was discovered
in the Seminole area, the population exploded
to 40,000 people.
Black gold flowed from wells
24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Hotels and business sprung up everywhere.
Now thoes days are gone, but not forgotten.
The boomers left a legacy that will never die.
By the giving of organizations and museums,
the past is preserved for future
generations to enjoy.
WE LOVE OUR TOWN
