The area known as Bricktown was the hub of commerce for Oklahoma City almost two years before the Land Run of 1889, when the Santa Fe Railroad laid track. The Santa Fe was followed by the Rock Island, the Firsco and the Katy Railroad companies.

The buildings needed to house the freight were built of red brick – the most available building material in the area. A testament to its durability is that many of the buildings refurbished for use in this newly renovated district were built in the 1890's.

Neal Horton, a developer with a vision in the 1970's, saw the potential of Bricktown. Unfortunately, the oil and banking crash of 1982 kept him from realizing his dreams. Others who believed in the project picked up the dream and brought it to life in the past decade.

The district is alive with businesses, a festive canal, riverwalk, water taxis, an Oklahoma City Triple-A baseball team (the Oklahoma Red Hawks), the AT&T Baseball Park and a schedule of events to keep everybody entertained. There's plenty of parking, covered and otherwise, to accommodate visitors.
