Oklahoma City

In 1910, Oklahoma City replaced Guthrie as the state capital, although the name wasn't recognised by the US postal service until 1923.

Despite atrocities to the Native Indians, or perhaps because of it, many street names in Oklahoma have Indian terms, and the Trail of Tears is re-enacted throughout the state.

Points of Interest

The white limestone State Capitol that sits on an oil well, the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, and the National Softball Hall of Fame.

Kirkpatrick Center

The multi-museum complex at 2100 N.E 52nd St. includes the Airspace Museum, the International Photography Hall of Fame, and the Omniplex; a hands-on science museum.
