tulsa ghost towns

In his Tulsa Tribune article, "Some Tulsa County Towns Are Only Faded Memories," Jim Downing pointed out that before Tulsa County was the City of Tulsa and everything else, the city was just a small part of everything else. Initally, the everything else consisted of small places that provided goods and that were spaced at convenient distances , allowing those travelling by team and wagon to make the roundtrip during daylight hours. Later, settlements sprang up along the railroad line as it expanded. Over time, many of these places ceased to exist, at least officially.
