Developing Thriving Downtown Communities


This burly city sits at the junction of three major rivers that brought Native Americans, explorers, traders and pioneers. Today, those same groups and many others come by way of three major highways. No matter how they got here, these incredibly diverse groups come together to form the unique character of the place we know as Muskogee.
Muskogee is full of genuine characters who have survived some hard times. Together, they make up the rich fabric of this strong Northeast Oklahoma city.
