“How did Tulsa cement itself as a major manufacturing hub? What influenced most jobs in Tulsa, OK to land in the industrial sector?

Oil and Planes

The oil rush had its own contribution in shaping America. Long before the state of Oklahoma was born, the Glenn Pool was discovered. Today, it’s a city 15 miles south of Tulsa; back in 1905, more than 120,000 barrels of black gold determined Tulsa’s destiny as an industrial economy. These reserves were easy to harvest using oil drilling equipment of the time.”
