Nowata Homes For Sale

In the Boom Days of Oklahoma, the City of Nowata would become known worldwide for having the world's shallowest oil deposits. This reputation would start a wild race to pump the formations throughout the community.

Oil was originally discovered in the area in the early 1900’s and became the backbone of our economy. A majority of local infrastructure can trace its very existence to the oil industry.

In 1906 the maximum daily production of oil was around 53,000 oil barrels per day or bbls. While oil production still exists within historic formations today, the local economy has become less energy dependent than the earlier years of the community.
