What is the origin of the word Tulsa

by biensalinasj

I always imagine Tulsa to be a mysterious city - full of romantic sceneries and really super friendly people?

What is Tulsa noted for ? What is the historical signifia\cance of the city?

Hmmm. I don't know the origin of the word "Tulsa" but I have been there. I don't want to shatter your romantic image, but let's just say I was there once and I don't really need to go back. I saw lots of abandoned buildings and homes that were boarded up. The hotel I stayed in was connected via a skywalk to a shopping center with an ice rink...but almost all the stores were vacant and their food court consisted of three fast food places. Granted, if you go out of the town area and cruise the suburbs it is typical middle America. Maybe if you take more time than I did to seek out the romantic scenery, I'm sure you could find something. Also, the people I met there were very friendly - we even had a barbecue at one couple's home, even though they didn't know all of us in the group. Put it on your list of place to check out for yourself.

All I know about Tulsa, other than driving through on the interstate, is the movie UHF with "Weird Al" Yankovic was filmed there! ;-) If you watch the commentary on the dvd, they will tell you the address of every location in the movie!

I think there are other U.S. cities much more romantic or mysterious. But it's all about what you're seeking and experiencing, isn't it?

Re: What is the origin of the word Tulsa

In the 1830s Native Americans were forced on a long march from the southeastern USA to the middle of the nation. This is known as the Trail of Tears. In 1836 the Lochapoka Creek Nation stopped their march at the Arkansas River and kindled a ceremonial fire. They laid out a village and called it Lochapoka but soon the village became known as Tulsee Town after the third Lochapoka chief. In the early 20th century oil was discovered in the area and the town boomed. It is now a city of half a million people.

But before it was called "Tulsee," I believe its orginal name was Chelsea Town. My great-aunt told me (although this could be an urban myth) that the name was misunderstood by a telegraph operator.

tulsa isn't really that bad.... send off for a travel guide... it can be pretty romantic in the evening...there are pretty things to see... just knowing where to find it.. :)

RE: RE: What is the origin of the word Tulsa

Exactly how it came to be pronounced "Tulsa" is lost to time but its derivation is from a Creek Indian word "Talasi" meaning "old town." It is the same word from which Tallahassee (in Florida) is derived. It was called Tulsee Town for some time before being officially incorporated as Tulsa. I've never heard the one about someone misunderstanding Chelsea - that's definitely a myth.

Travel Tips for Tulsa

Not Just Brick and Stone

by mrclay2000

Part of Tulsa's great diversity and cosmopolitan flare are reflected in its wide range of downtown buildings. The architect and the architecture aficionados will have plenty to admire through an easy stroll downtown. While most will best remember the stone and marble of its famous historic buildings, and bemoan the afflictions of its two old grand hotels of surviving brick, the newest additions to the Tulsa skyline are just as eye-catching and impressive.

Best steak in ..... town

by caminoreal about Freddie's

The best beefsteak in Tulsa isn't really in Tulsa. It's in Sapulpa, or at least it's on the road to Sapulpa.
Freddie's Steak House is one of several Lebanese steak restaurants in Tulsa and nearby communities. There are several others also named Freddies. But the Freddies on New Sapulpa Road is the best of them all.
If you order a steak you also get appetizers including wonderful cabbage rolls, tabouli, a dish of hummus b'tahini with a vegetable relish plate, a good-sized salad (I recommend the house dressing.), a barbecued rib, your choice of potatoes and a steak that's almost always done to perfection. I say "almost" always because in nearly 30 years of eating regularly at Freddies, I've had one steak that was served a wee bit too rare and I sent it back for a little more flame.

I never use steak sauces that cover up the flavor of the meat. However, at Freddies I always beg for the secret-recipe smoke sauce that, while a little salty, is a wonderful enhancement. I always buy a bottle of the smoke sauce to put on steaks and burgers I grill at home also. Rib Eye Steak -- medium rare, with a baked potato and the works.

Tulsa's Federal Building

by mrclay2000

Started in 1917 to house Tulsa's first permanent post office, this elaborate building (completed in 1931) takes up the better part of the block. Unfortunately, the lack of variation as the eye pans along the endless facade seems to steal some of the pageantry from its classical details. Column after column after Corinthian column, and still the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
