Historic Downtown Sapulpa
Sapulpa, Oklahoma, is a community of over 21,000 people located approximately fifteen miles southwest of Tulsa. With access to our town from five major highways, Sapulpa provides you with all the benefits of a large city with all the charm and friendliness of a smaller town.
Sapulpa boasts a beautiful, nationally recognized central downtown district, which is located on Historic Route 66. The entire downtown area is a free WiFi hotspot and features outdoor seating and cafes in addition to an eclectic mix of thriving businesses. Downtown WiFi access makes the 2nd and 3rd stories of downtown buildings ideal start-up locations for small offices or professional businesses.
Sapulpa Main Street
Sapulpa became an official Main Street community in 1990. A visionary group of individuals recognized that Sapulpa had a rich downtown that was not fully contributing to the economic development of the community. In the past 15 years, $15.5 million in private and public funds were put into downtown brick and mortar projects.
The Main Street program will continue its economic development work to ensure the heart of the city, Sapulpa's distinguishing characteristic, remains vital. The current focus is on continued recruitment of diversified, specialized retail, development of upper floor spaces into housing and offices, and image promotion.
