Muskogee History

Muskogee was officially incorporated in 1876, even though the settlement had existed for decades before that under the same name. It is believed that French traders established a temporary village near the town’s current location as early as 1806. The first permanent settlement was established on the banks of Verdigris River in 1817, north of the current location of Muskogee. When oil was discovered in the area in 1905, Muskogee began to develop very rapidly.
