Home is the nicest word there is. ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder In the same way Laura Ingalls found her “nicest word” in a little house on the prairie, 7,500+ Oklahomans have discovered their home in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country...nestled between the tall grass prairies, rolling Osage Hills and picturesque lakes of northeast Oklahoma. Since it’s incorporation in 1905, Skiatook’s natural resources and location have offered a variety of opportunities for individuals, businesses and families to thrive and to experience Oklahoma living at its best. So, whether you’re looking for a place to “live, work, or play” Skiatook is a great place to call home!

I have several army buddies who have visited me from time to time in Skiatook... one in particular was Carroll Quisenberry from Owensboro, Kentucky. It was several decades ago that he came to go quail hunting and asked, “While I’m here is there anything of interest in downtown Skiatook?” So, I told him he had to see the Bayouth Department Store “museum.” When we arrived I introduced him to Mr. Bus Bayouth. Looking about the store, my friend spotted Mr. Bayouth’s glass counter, housing some of his most unusual treasures. One such oddity was two bottles of Hadacol from the 1940’s. Per Wikipedia Hadacol was “a patent medicine marketed as a vitamin supplement. Its principal attraction, however, was that it contained 12% alcohol listed on the tonic bottle’s label as a ‘preservative,’ which made it quite popular in the dry counties of the southern United States.” Carroll asked Bus if he would sell him one of the bottles. Being the businessman he was, Bus said, “I’ll sell you one and this is what it will cost you.” The deal was struck and with that they became friends forever. Every time my friend came back to Skiatook, he always dropped by to see Bus and the store. While Carroll was here, he bought a bird dog pup which he appropriately named “Skiatook.” One day, back in Owensboro, he was out walking Skiatook in the neighborhood when the pup bolted into a strange yard. Carroll hollered out, “Skiatook! Get back here!” The neighbor, working on his car in the drive, looked up and said, “What did you call that dog?” “Skiatook,” Carroll responded. “Why do you call him Skiatook?” the neighbor asked. “That’s where I bought him.” he replied. The neighbor scoffed, “Nobody knows where Skiatook is...I doubt you’ve ever been there.” Carroll immediately replied, “If you ever go to Skiatook, ask Mr. Bus Bayouth if I’ve ever been there.” Smiling the neighbor replied, “I believe you certainly have been there!” Carroll’s new neighbor turned out to be former Skiatook resident Richard Collins. Now, is Skiatook famous, or what? n

Mobilizing the City

Jeannie Eller

The Chamber of Commerce office is the acknowledged “front door” to Skiatook, responding to inquiries from potential and new residents, as well as, visitors and prospective businesses. Hundreds of information requests are processed annually. It also serves as the “community bulletin board” disseminating information on community events and issues via its member network and regular community wide meetings. The Skiatook Chamber of Commerce is organized to advance the general welfare and prosperity of the Skiatook area so that its citizens and business community may prosper. The Chamber works closely with the City of Skiatook in its efforts to assist existing businesses and to attract new ones. This provides our citizens with the convenience of finding products and services locally, and at the same time increasing sales tax revenue that allows the city to provide improved services. Through its partnerships with the Tulsa Area Chamber, Oklahoma Chamber, Osage Tourism and other business and governmental agencies, the Chamber promotes and guards Skiatook’s interests in regional, state and national issues.

Melissa Gardner

Annually the Chamber sponsors numerous events and services. Among these are: • The annual Pioneer Day Festival • Flags of Honor Program • Monthly luncheons for the business community • Annual Christmas Parade & Santa’s Workshop • Ribbon cuttings for new businesses • Annual Chamber Awards Banquet • Representing Skiatook to regional organizations

“As Skiatook has grown the requirements for emergency personal have increased accordingly. In the last 20 years Skiatook has moved from a minimal group of firefighters to a larger force running two modern Advance Life Support ambulances. Our personnel are the best in the area and are trained fully in every facet of emergency service from medical to hazmat to fire suppression.” ~ Bob Nail, Skiatook Fire Marshall

Where the Cherokee & Osage Meet Historical records have conflicting data as to the origin of Skiatook’s name. One story is that the town was founded on land which was the home of a prominent Osage Indian, Skiatooka, and the community around his home was called Skiatooka’s Settlement. Another story is that the name was taken from Ski-A-Took, Cherokee in origin meaning either “big injun me” or describing a large man or a vast tract of land. It is generally accepted that Cherokee Chief William C. Rogers founded Skiatook when he established a trading post in the Cherokee Nation just to the south of Bird

Creek where the stream was easily crossed. The Osage Indian, Skiatooka, was a frequent trader at the post, which brought his name as a possible connection in the town’s name. The first Skiatook Post Office was established in the Rogers’ store in the 1880s; and in 1892, the name took its present form, “Skiatook.” Regardless of which naming story is accurate, the Native American influence on Skiatook’s heritage is undeniable. Osage County was the original federal allotment for the Osages in the 19th Century and the Osages are the only tribe today within the state of Oklahoma to retain a federally recognized reservation. They maintain the

tribes national headquarters in Pawhuska, OK, the Osage County seat, where a concerted effort is underway to preserve the native tongue and culture, and to continue negotiations on behalf of the tribe. Their mineral rights and their recent entrance into commercial development through the gaming industry and retail ventures have not only funded tribal initiatives, but have also strengthened their continued involvement and influence over the development of Skiatook and Osage County. Skiatook enjoys a healthy working relationship with the Osage Nation and other surrounding tribal governments. n

“Banking in Skiatook is a very local and personal thing,” says life-long Skiatook resident, A.B. Bayouth. “Many of the people we serve are not just second, third and fourth generation customers, they are also second, third and fourth generation friends. When we reinvest in the community it is not in institutions, but in people we know personally. I think even newcomers to Skiatook will experience that same attitude of personal service across the Skiatook banking community.” ~ A.B. Bayouth, The Exchange Bank



Bus Bayouth Pioneer Award Recipient Morris Neighbors was born in 1925 in the nearby Osage County oil boom town of Wildhorse. After time away at college, his purple heart service in the Pacific theater of World War II, and a brief teaching career in the Oklahoma panhandle, Morris and Wanda brought their family back to Green Country. Working in Tulsa and with Wildhorse no longer in existence, they settled in Skiatook, where Morris’ parents, Lether and Nell, had also settled in retirement. All five of the Morris’ & Wanda’s kids...Tim, Belinda, Kelly, Scott & Matt...graduated from Skiatook High School and, following Dad’s example over the next 5 decades, went off to college, started families and careers, and then returned to Skiatook to continue their vocations or retirement. As a family they have traveled across the nation and the globe on mission trips, WWII ship reunions and family vacations, but they truly believe there’s no place like home and that home is Skiatook!

A Quieter Pace Whether you’re settling your business life in Skiatook or looking for a daily retreat from your work in Tulsa or on the road, Skiatook can meet your needs. Looking for a starter home across the street from the school? How about that first empty nester home or a nice downsize for retirement? Maybe you’ve reached a major career goal and you’re ready to celebrate in 4,000 pristine square feet with a lake view and a slip for your 30’ sailboat! From the fixer upper in an established neighborhood to the mansion on the lake; from the quaint neighborhood near downtown to the development on the outskirts with half acre lots or the country home with acreage, Skiatook’s real estate professionals can find you a place to call home. As Skiatook continues to expand services to outlying areas, the opportunities for new housing developments grow everyday, creating a good market of newer homes. Many older, established homes and neighborhoods are experiencing makeovers, allowing your kids to experience the perks “small town life” offers like knowing their neighbors and walking to school or the park. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

We realize not everyone is ready to settle in for the long haul. As such, Skiatook is seeing an increase in the construction of loft apartments, duplexes and multi-family dwellings for those wishing to rent, not own. Additionally, Skiatook currently has two senior living complexes with two more breaking ground in 2016. All of these are located near or in downtown and are serviced by low cost transportation. For those looking to build, there are several new developments in and around Skiatook and numerous small and large acreages just waiting for someone to call home. n

Friendly Banking Since 1963




Yesterday and Tomorrow Ushering in Statehood

The first deed in town was granted to the Skiatook Bank, later known as the First National Bank, on December 18, 1904. That same day, lumber began being delivered to build the bank building, and on January 24, 1905 the Skiatook Bank opened for business. Following the Skiatook Bank, more construction began throughout town, and many buildings replaced shacks and tents. Also in 1904, the Midland Valley Railroad was built through the area and a weekly newspaper, The Skiatook Sentinel, was first published. The town became incorporated on May 28, 1905 and by fall of 1906, the residents had the conveniences of natural gas and public telephones. Several country schools had been scattered throughout the area, and Skiatook Schools began in 1905. After Oklahoma Statehood in 1907 construction began on permanent roads and bridges. The first church building constructed in Skiatook was the First Christian Church

in 1907. Cement sidewalks were constructed between 1909 and 1910, and in 1912 Skiatook received water, sewer and electric light improvements. The area experienced much growth in the oil, gas and farm industries. Increased traffic through town warranted better streets, and by the fall of 1919, Skiatook had 15 blocks of continuous cement paved streets. In 1920, Skiatook had 2,000 residents and around 50 businesses. A road to Tulsa was paved in the early 1920’s, and with good roads leading out in all directions, Skiatook became known as the Gateway to all points North, South, East and West. In the 1930’s, Skiatook began purchasing water from Spavinaw, but the completion of Skiatook Lake in 1984 gave Skiatook its own water source. Since its beginning in the late 1880s, the town of Skiatook has grown steadily. It is estimated the population has increased by 93% since 1990. Information compiled by Snowhawk from the Skiatook Historical Society & the Skiatook Journal.


For many years Skiatook held the distinction of “Oklahoma’s largest town,” a reference to maintaining its original trustee form of government in spite of its growing population. In 2012 a town referendum moved Skiatook to city status with a new structure of government and a new resolve for outfitting the city to handle the northward migration of Tulsa and meet the need for the amenities to handle this growth. Partnerships forged in the “small town” days serve as a strong foundation on which to build Skiatook’s future. The city fathers provide strong leadership and civic services to support and mobilize a workforce that includes collaboration with the schools, Chamber of Commerce, lake associations, Osage and Tulsa counties, area tribal governments, churches, civic organizations, state tourism groups and more. n

One of the newest entrepreneurs on Skiatook’s main street is SHS grad Cassie Butler, owner of Rubies and Rouge Boutique. “As a start up business it has been fun to bring new things to Skiatook...products or styles they haven’t seen before on main know, to have my unique place. ” ~ Cassie Butler, Owner Rubies & Rouge Boutique

Putting Faith in Skiatook Skiatook has a long heritage of faith and of strong churches who are not only engaged in the ministries of their particular denominations, but who also invest actively in the quality of life in Skiatook and the surrounding area. You will regularly find the 20+ churches of Skiatook supporting the schools, participating in the Chamber of Commerce or serving as sites for voting, disaster relief or community gatherings of all types. They often pull together on projects like the Backpack Program, that addresses hunger among the students of Skiatook schools, or the community Easter egg hunt and sunrise service, baccalaureate service and more. These churches range from very new congregations to those who have celebrated over a century of service. The partnership of these faith based ministries with each other and the community at large is a strong foundational block in the past and future success of Skiatook. In addition to individual churches, a number of other faith-based institutions and joint projects are a vital part of the fabric of life in Skiatook. Shepherd’s Fold Ranch has been in existence since 1972 with a ministry that has expanded from summer camps to after school programs vital to the success of at risk kids in the public schools and in the development of young leaders who serve in the programs. n 14


“The churches of Skiatook have a much greater mission than getting together in groups to worship. The people of Skiatook… their spiritual well-being... this is our calling and investing in their lives outside the walls of the church is our mission. Our part in the success of Skiatook is to support healthy families and marriages, foster integrity among the business and community leaders and lift up those who need a helping hand along the way.” ~ Heath Tucker, Lead Pastor, First Baptist Church

Skiatook a City of Character Promoting Character and Community

The Skiatook “City of Character” exists to promote character within our community. The Council strives to strengthen the values of Skiatook residents, families, and businesses. This is done each month by emphasizing one of forty-nine defined character traits. A joint effort has been created between the City and Chamber of Skiatook, the business sector, the faith community, and school systems, to promote and encourage excellence in character.

Character Matters: It is the foundation of every right choice and the fuel for healthy relationships. It influences an individual and defines a community. Character strengthens business and helps the economy to grow. It adds lasting value that affects every aspect of our lives.

Preparing for our 50th Anniversary in 2017 My Creed

Since 1967

by Dean Alfange “I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon. I seek to develop whatever talents God gave me – not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having a state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower to any earthly master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say- “This, with God’s help, I have done.” All this is what it means to be an American.“

Completed in 2011 Skiatook’s Central Park is the newest of Skiatook’s 3 major city parks. Situated in the heart of town on the city’s main boulevard it is the starting point for the Osage Prairie Trail, a 10’ wide paved walking and biking path that winds for 14.5 miles through residential areas and woodlands, to the OSU-Tulsa campus near downtown Tulsa. The trail features 8 pedestrian bridges and future plans call for its extension north to Birch Lake near Barnsdall. The park is a constant beehive of activity as local citizens take advantage of the free splash pad, covered swings, picnic pavilions, cushioned play yard, walking trails, fountain pond and

more. Local groups also reserve the park for events that run the gamut from small gatherings to the city’s annual Pioneer Day Festival, which brings thousands to the park. Located on the easternmost edge of town is John Zink Park, a picturesque, heavily shaded park with large areas to run, picnic and enjoy being outdoors. Exchange Bank Park is the city’s oldest park located in the heart of the original neighborhoods of Skiatook. Many of Skiatook’s long-time residents grew up playing here on the little league ball field, the tennis courts and visiting the public pool, which was replaced in 2007 with a new pool. A new senior citizens recreation and nutrition center was completed in 2016, immediately across the street from the park. The rolling Osage Hills around Skiatook feature several county and rural highways connecting it to Tulsa on the south and the tallgrass areas around Barnsdall to the

Rodeo is alive and well in Skiatook, OK. The Skiatook Roundup Club, organized in 1948, averages around 300 members a year. In the mid-1960’s the Skiatook Roundup Club moved to the facility where it is located today. The arena was built through the labor of club members and a generous donation by A.T. Ferree, who donated the land and arena to the club to insure that rodeo would live on in Skiatook, OK. The club puts on several events throughout the year including two open rodeos, twelve playdays, twenty-four barrel races, junior rodeos, and in 2016 hosted an Indian Tour Rodeo over Labor Day. The club also competes at the Cavalcade Rodeo every year which is the world’s largest amateur rodeo held in nearby Pawhuska, OK. Information about the Skiatook Roundup Club can be found at www. In June the Skiatook Bluegrass Association hosts the annual two day Tallgrass Music Festival bringing in some of the nation’s best bluegrass entertainment.

Local Attractions For those who like to find the hidden treasures of a community and occasionally wander off “the beaten path” the Skiatook area offers some unique sites to visit. There are no malls in Osage County.

We like it that way. Most everything you might need, you can find - you just need to know how. The locals know; just ask. People in small cities find what they need by networking. There is a strong arts presence here, evidenced by sculptures and murals in many public places. Galleries, studios, and unique gift shops can be explored, and local artists are well represented. Antiquing? We’ve got that too. Browse the aisles of several shops and you’ll find yourself in another place in time. Most likely you’ll discover a treasured piece of Oklahoma history to take back home with you. Osage County is full of specialty shops. Come check ‘em out. We promise you a unique and enjoyable shopping experience. THE HEALING ROCK

This natural monument was once called Teepee Rock and considered a healing site by the Osage and Quapaw Indians in the late 19th century. It is said to have mystical healing powers. After archeologists examined the formation, evidence proved the rock was a natural formation and had been set in near perfect vertical alignment by natural erosion, ending speculation that the rock was man-made. The Healing Rock stands 12 feet high, has a 17-foot base, and is 14 to 22


16 inches thick. It is triangular in shape with its jagged apex pointing upward to the heavens. When plans for Skiatook Lake were finalized, it became clear the rock would be covered by water. Locals campaigned to save the rock, and in 1985, the Corps of Engineers moved the rock to its present location 1/8 mile south of the project office on Skiatook Lake. An access trail, built by the Corps, leads from the project office to this unique natural feature. THE SKIATOOK MUSEUM

The Skiatook Historical Society was organized in April of 1976. The goal of the members was to preserve the interesting history of Skiatook from its beginning to the present time. The Skiatook Museum was established thanks to the people who kept mementos, scrapbooks, pictures, letters, and artifacts. In 1988, with the aid of the Oklahoma Historical Society, the Skiatook Museum found a permanent home, moving into the 1912 home of pioneer doctor W. G. Phillips. The museum completed an addition to the home in 1999 which added much needed space for the display of local historical documents, as well as furniture and other household items of the town’s pioneers. Historians, students, genealogists and anyone searching for Skiatook’s past can view the personal papers, documents

and photographs of the town’s pioneer families, events and places. Also provided is a microfilm reader to enable visitors to research into newspapers dating back to April of 1905, the date the first newspaper in town began publishing. TULSA BOTANIC GARDEN

Located on a county highway between Skiatook Lake and downtown Tulsa is one of the area’s newest and best kept secrets. Working with landscape architects from Dallas, Atlanta, and Tulsa, Tulsa Botanic Garden unveiled its exciting master plan in December 2012, laying out a vision for developing 60 acres of gardens over the next 25 years. This plan concentrates garden spaces around a seven-acre lake, fully utilizing the beautiful views across the lake by setting gardens around it on all sides. From the Amphitheater on the north side, to the Children’s Discovery Garden, A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces,

and Inspiration Gardens on the west, to a Chapel, tropical Conservatory, and Edible Gardens on the east, these gardens will highlight the worldwide importance of plants to human civilization. Contrasting with these gardens are the remaining 110 acres of natural beauty, to be experienced in the western reaches of the garden site. With gardens literally evolving daily and new venues being added regularly, Tulsa Botanic Gardens has already become a must see site for locals and tourists alike.


Did you know that the first Boy Scout Troop in America was founded in 1909 in Osage County? There is a monument to these Scouting pioneers at the Osage County Historical Society Museum. The monument, cast by local artist John Free at the Bronze Horse Foundry, can be found at Lynn Ave. and 7th Street in Pawhuska.

Just north of Skiatook , the Joseph H. Williams Tallgrass Prairie Preserve is the largest (39,000 acres) protected remnant of tallgrass prairie left on earth. Originally spanning portions of 14 states from Texas to Minnesota, urban sprawl and conversion to cropland have left less than 10% of this magnificent American landscape. Since 1989, the Conservancy has proven successful at restoring this fully-functioning portion of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem with the use of about 2,500 free-ranging bison and a “patch-burn” model approach to prescribed burning.

Need photo of working Skiatook Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future. ~ Denis Waitley

Working in Skiatook! At first glance, some might call Skiatook a “bedroom community.” It IS a great respite for those who work in nearby Tulsa but have found they prefer suburban living. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t career opportunities in Skiatook proper. With a population of 7,500+ and an even larger school district approaching 12,000, Skiatook services a sizeable citizenry and that means jobs. Skiatook Public Schools is the largest employer with a staff of approximately 300 full-time professional and support positions and many more part-time workers as substitutes, bus drivers and more. Wal Mart hires a workforce of 150 and the City of Skiatook, Worthington Industries, Osage Casino, Warehouse Market, Accelerated Lift and the financial institutions are among some of the other businesses who have larger employee bases. But the real backbone of the workforce in Skiatook is small business. Lube shops, auto parts, dry cleaners, farm

and ranch supply, professional offices, restaurants and fast food, hair salons and boutiques, convenience stores, hardware stores, seasonal businesses... all of the local services and shops it takes to support a growing city and the smaller surrounding towns also provide employment opportunities that run the gamut from the full-time career to second income to part-time and summer jobs. As Skiatook grows, so do the needs and niches for new business. In the past couple of years alone Skiatook has seen several brand names come to town, as well as, numerous local, independent retailers and services. Chains like Taco Bueno, Warehouse Market, and Casey’s General Store have carved out a spot on main street Skiatook and a number of independent owners and local entrepreneurs have started new businesses like The Hitch ‘N’ Post and Rubies & Rouge Boutique.

Living in Skiatook is special. Living AND working in Skiatook is doubly special...and the opportunities for doing both are wide open! n

“As Skiatook grows we will continue to see new local businesses started and existing businesses expanded; but we also expect Skiatook will become a market for more national and regional chains. Our goal at Skiatook’s Taco Bueno is to set the example in how to transform a national brand into a vested partner in the local community. As the smallest city in the nation to have a Bueno franchise, we’re the ideal market to model that concept.” ~ Omar Bayouth, Taco Bueno, Skiatook

Learning in Skiatook An educational system isn’t worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn’t teach them how to make a life. ~Author Unknown QUALITY EDUCATION AT HOME

Skiatook Public Schools are at the heartbeat of our community. From a financial standpoint they are the single largest employer in the city and a major consumer of local goods and services. From a social perspective, the draw of the “Friday night lights” is but one of many examples of the way school activities draw and unite the community; and the school facilities truly do belong to and are utilized by the citizens. But most importantly, the educational opportunities provided in and around

Skiatook create a reliable pathway to success for the young people of Skiatook. The long and storied history of Skiatook’s schools have made it a part of the fabric that defines Skiatook. The 30, 40 and 50 year reunions are often attended by a majority of classmates who have stayed in Skiatook or returned in retirement. In addition to the public schools, Skiatook also offers the private Hope Christian Academy and a robust network of home schoolers who are involved in local and area co-ops. CONTINUING TO LEARN

Skiatook’s educational opportunities have prepared youth for careers and for furthering their educational aspirations in schools all across the nation. But many

youth and adults choose to continue their higher education closer to home in one of the many state, private and trade institutions located within commuting distance of Skiatook. List of area colleges and trade schools: Drury Campus NSU Oklahoma Wesleyan Oral Roberts University OSU-Tulsa OU-Tulsa Rogers State Tulsa Community College Tulsa Technology Center University of Phoenix University of Tulsa

“Since I came to Skiatook ’Excellence in action!’ has been our overarching goal for all we do at Skiatook Public Schools. But each year we endeavor to focus and interpret that broader goal in specific ways that impact students, teachers and the community in very personal and measurable ways. Recently we have highlighted the philosophy that ‘ALL means ALL.’ ALL students can learn...ALL students can progress. To accomplish that we must measure and evaluate the individual progress of students to be sure that each is moving from where they are to the next level and on to a successful future, whether that is college, trade school or employment right out of high school. We believe ALL can succeed.” ~ Rick Thomas, Superintendent, Skiatook Public Schools

With additional facilities being added each year to accommodate fans and players, it is becoming a quality site for area and regional sporting events.
