Owasso is an Osage Tribe word meaning "end of the trail" or "turn around," which around 1900, was the location where the Atchinson, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad ended. In 1904, Owasso became a town under the laws of Indian Territory, and eventually became chartered as a city in 1972. Our official city logo, as well as Owasso's symbol of it's proud Native American Indian heritage, is the "End of the Trail" painting.
Owasso is in Tulsa County located in north eastern Oklahoma. This is Green Country, Oklahoma in America's Heartland. Owasso is just a few miles NE of Tulsa, which is on the Arkansas River. We're around 10 minutes from the Tulsa Airport, and about the same to the Port of Catoosa, which joins the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Lakes. When I was a kid, we used to travel to Catoosa in my Daddy's 35 foot shrimping boat from the Gulf coast city of Lake Charles, Louisiana.
A very pleasant country hometown, Owasso has all the amenities of a city without losing it's country flair; and yet we're close enough to Tulsa for any "big city" necessities... and cruising around the "bright lights" of downtown. - Try it in a convertible!<grin> You'll love it!
