Tulsa SVG is located in Green Country, Oklahoma. The locals call it “Tee Town”, and outside the city (and country) Tulsa is known as the oil capital of the world. The charm of the Old West is combined here with the dynamics and cosmopolitan atmosphere. The city experienced a construction boom in the 1920s and today Tulsa has the highest concentration of art deco buildings in the country, which attracts tourists.
Dozens of fairly large penguin sculptures are scattered throughout Tulsa. The sculptures began to appear in 2002 in order to raise money to build housing for black-legged African penguins.
Tulsa SVG was originally part of Indian territory, so the first settlers were the lochapoca tribes and the scream. They settled here in 1836, calling the settlement “Tallasi” – that is, “the old city”. Up until 1905 it was a small and quiet town, but when a large deposit was found in Glenn Poole, the city’s population jumped sharply. Thanks to oil, the economic situation in Tulsa and during the Great Depression was much better than in other American cities.
Tulsa SVG is considered the “birthplace of Route 66. Businessman Cyrus Avery, the “father of Route 66,” began his campaign to build a highway that would connect Chicago with California in 1925 with the creation of an association in Tulsa.
