Tulsa is the town that oil built. Initially settled by the Creek Indians in the 1800s, it was a relatively small community until oil was discovered on the west side of the Arkansas River. The Sue Bland No. 1, Tulsa’s first oil well, was drilled in 1901 in Red Fork, which is now part of southwest Tulsa. Businessmen poured into town with the discovery of the huge Glenn Pool oil field, and the city became a boom town.
The wealthy “oil barons” who profited from the area’s vast fossil fuel reserves built many of downtown Tulsa’s beautiful Art Deco buildings, and the city continues to benefit from their philanthropic and cultural efforts.
At the Campbell, we honor the investors who built our city with Room 225, our luxurious Oil Barons Suite.
This room features a dazzling skylight, a pair of queen-size four-poster beds, dual vanities, a whirlpool jetted tub, and a standalone shower to give guests a chance to experience a lifestyle fit for an oil baron.
