In some ways, living in a comparatively young state is a real trip. While many of us think about pre-statehood Oklahoma as the frontier, it was not without some modern conveniences. Not that you could charge your iPhone there, but in 1889 a city in what would become northeast Oklahoma was the first in our state to get electricity. In fact, quite a bit of the power moved in that area of the state still runs through a company that was founded there. That’s not the city’s only claim to fame, either—one of the largest McDonalds restaurants in the world greets those driving through the area.

What was the first city in Oklahoma with electricity?
