Produced by iconic American mapmaker Rand McNally, this depiction of Oklahoma and Indian Territory was published just two years after the state was opened for general settlement. Previously the territory was considered Indian Territory, but two treaties ratified in 1889 caused a land grab allowing local tribes to sell their land to American settlers. The two distinct territories were divided into eastern and western regions, as well as along tribal lines.
This pre-statehood map illustrates the tribes living in this rugged, frontier region and the towns and cities that sprung up alongside them. The Bartlesville oil boom in1897 sparked another influx of miners, and oil drilling became a massive industry for the local economy. The history of Oklahoma’s oilfields is rich and storied with vast fortunes being made overnight and busting just as quickly. The discovery of new oilfields was national news and brought numerous investors seeking riches to the remote territory, and these discoveries were frequent enough to keep the population growing. By 1927 Oklahoma was producing more oil than any other state.
These territories were also leased by major Chicago meatpackers who kept vast herds of cattle to ship north for processing. Oklahoma achieved statehood in 1907, but the 1890s were a transformative and challenging time in the region and are when its reputation as a rough and tumble frontier was well earned. The distinctive aesthetic of Rand McNally maps is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time to vast cattle ranches and oil derricks.
