The Bridge That Saved Tulsa


Because bonds could not be issued in Tulsa's village days, many despaired of bridging the Arkansas, but M.L. Baird, J.D. Hagler and Geo. T. Williamson, risking their own money, completed this bridge January 4, 1904, placarding the tollgates: "You said we couldn't do it but we did."

A roadway was thus opened to the oilfields and the Great Glenn Pool, discovered in 1905. Without this bridge, Tulsa could not have become
"The Oil Capitol of the World"
