Our visit to OKC included an afternoon in “Bricktown” – a renovated section of the old city that was originally mills and factories along the railroad line. There was a large rail station adjacent that is being renovated into restaurants & shop as well. Winding they Bricktown is a man made canal opened in the 1990s with water shuttles that offer a narrated tour of the area. It’s a great way to learn about the buildings, their history and the newer features such as the sculptures commemorating the great Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889
“The Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 was the first land rush into the Unassigned Lands. The area that was opened to settlement included all or part of the present-day Canadian, Cleveland, Kingfisher, Logan, Oklahoma, and Payne counties of the US state of Oklahoma.”
