Founded in 1903 as a camp for black railroad construction workers, Boley flourished as a town because of its fertile farmland, which was distributed as allotments to Creek-Freedmen. It was also billed as a haven where African Americans could govern themselves, drawing settlers from Texas, Georgia and Florida. Booker T. Washington called Boley "the most enterprising and... interesting" of the black towns. Group tours available with meal. Call (918) 667-3341 for tour information.
