Oklahoma City was founded in a single day, April 22, 1889. On that “Wild and Wooley” morning, thousands of desperate people descended upon the 320 teaming, chaotic acres that would become the state’s largest city. Merchants, bankers, newspaper men and lawyers literally fought for city lots alongside Saloon keepers, gamblers and prostitutes in “Hell’s Half Acre.”
