On New Year’s Day, 1872, a surveyor for the Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railroad drove the stakes for a depot to be called Muscogee Station. Located three miles south of the Three Forks where the Arkansas, Grand and Verdigris Rivers join together, this railroad terminus gave birth to the City of Muskogee.
More than 100 years later, Muskogee is still a thriving port community with a downtown steeped in history, rich in culture and alive with pride. We invite you to explore all that Muskogee has to offer. We're sure you'll want to come back often, or even come to stay. That's why we say, "Meet me in Muskogee!"
