Oklahoma City is both the largest city in the state of Oklahoma and the state capital. Located along the North Canadian River in the center of the state, Oklahoma City was founded on April 22, 1889 in the Land Run. In the 1830s many Native Americans were forced to relocate in the new Oklahoma territory. As railroads laid tracks through the territory during westward expansion, the government gave in to pressure to allow settlement in the “Unassigned Lands”. As a result, a chain of land runs were established to allow settlers to claim land. The first land run on April 22 established Oklahoma City as over 50,000 settlers gathered at the edge of the city and claimed land.
As railroad presence increased in the territory, Oklahoma City became one of the largest cities in Oklahoma and a center for milling, meat packing and trade. Stockyards were developed and the city’s population continued to grow rapidly as the large livestock market attracted jobs. In 1928 an oil field was discovered beneath the city and oil, natural gas, and petroleum industries became a large part of Oklahoma City’s economy. Wealth came with the oil strike and financial and manufacturing industries grew. During World War II, Oklahoma City was home to many war industries and Tinker Air Force Base was developed, stimulating the economy post war. Today, Oklahoma City continues to be a center for finance, farm trade, livestock and distribution.
The history of oil production, construction and manufacturing in Oklahoma City includes many industries and jobsites where asbestos products were widely used, putting residents at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related illnesses.
