Welcome to Wagoner! We're a laid-back, flag waving, easy going community.
We like living close to Tulsa, but we love heading home to 'dress down' in our jeans and tennis shoes.
We enjoy many visitors traveling through our area. In fact, we built a tourist center just to keep tourists here a little longer. We want you to enjoy our diversity of food and to shop at our many gift and antique businesses.
Wagoner is at the 'heart' of history in northeastern Oklahoma and many historical attractions are available as a week-end get-a-way.
Wagoner was the first incorporated town in Indian Territory, the first town in Indian Territory to establish public schools and the first seat of the Dawes Commission.
The town was named for Henry Samuel 'Bigfoot' Wagoner, a dispatcher for the Missouri, Kansas and Texas (Katy) railroad.
Many beautiful homes and buildings were built during this period, some dating back to early 1900's; and a 'Wagoner Driving Tour of Historic Buildings and Homes' is available to visitors. Stop by Fort Gibson Lake Visitor's Center or the Chamber of Commerce for the complete driving pamphlet. The homes are not open to the public but worth viewing from the streets.
Last, but not least, we have Ft Gibson Lake where there is plenty to keep you busy including:
- Fishing (Black & White Bass, Catfish, Panfish)
- Hunting (Whitetail Deer, Bobwhite Quail, Dove, Duck, Geese, Rabbit, Squirrel
- Camping (with or without facilities)
