Welcome to Bristow, the Woodland Queen!

One of the Oklahoma towns in the Southwest corner of Green Country is alive with excitement and full of fun things to do.

Bristow's history dates back to the opening of the Indian Territory to white settlers.

Founded in 1897 as a Trading Post, its beauty prompted it to be named the "Woodland Queen of Creek Nation".

Actual building of Bristow began with the coming of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railroad in July 1898. The naming of the city Bristow was after the honorable J.L. Bristow, Assistant Postmaster General.

In the 1920's, Bristow was an oil-boom town. From 1920 to 1942 mineral production was the most important source of new wealth in Oklahoma.
