Capital-Oklahoma City

Though claimed by Robert LaSalle for France in 1682, the region remained inhabited primarily by Indians. In 1803 the United States bought the area in the Louisiana Purchase. First set aside as a new homeland for displaced eastern Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes, the area was known as Indian Territory after 1834. Oklahoma was opened to homesteaders in 1889 and the Oklahoma Territory was organized the next year. The state was formed in 1907 from the Indian Territory and the newer Oklahoma Territory.

1541-Explored by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado for Spain 1889-Permanently settled by American homesteaders 1907-Admitted to the Union as the 46th state.
