The city of Moore, Oklahoma is located in central Oklahoma and is considered part of the Oklahoma City metro. As an inviting city in the metro, many people are enticed to live in Moore and commute the 9 miles north on Interstate-35 to Oklahoma City for work.
Similar to many communities in Oklahoma, Moore was founded during the great land-run of 1889 by settlers hoping to grab a piece of land out west. The town was soon populated and named "Verbeck" by the railroad company that founded the settlement. Local historians continue the story with a railroad employee named Al Moore, a conductor or brakeman on the railroad, who lived in a boxcar and had difficulty receiving his mail. He painted his name, "Moore," on a board and nailed it on the boxcar. When a postmaster was appointed to the town, he continued to call the town, “Moore” and the name stuck. When the town was incorporated in 1893, the name “Moore” was legalized.
Moore continued to be a small town for about seventy years until it exploded in a great rush of growth and development in the early 1960’s. In 1961, the town annexed additional area and officially became a city in 1962. The next decades saw the population grow by leaps and bounds. The 1970 census showed an increase of more than 950% and the 1980 Census showed an 86% growth rate.
Currently, Moore is still a growing community with an estimated population of 52,361. The city of Moore attracts residents with its perfect location between the vibrant metro of Oklahoma City and educational community of the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Several businesses have relocated to the area and the economy is doing well. Residents of Moore are very active in the community and work to keep it a great place to live, work, and visit.
If you are in Moore, there are several places of interest to visit and enjoy. For those who enjoy the outdoors, Buck Thomas Park offers 102 acres of open space with a playground, skate park, tennis courts, nature trails, and picnic area. If you are looking for entertainment, the Warren Theater is an luxurious experience and the Yellow Rose Theatre is an evening of delicious food and a show. Recently, the downtown area of Moore on Broadway has been revitalized and new businesses have moved into the old buildings such as the historic school building. The Old Town Association is involved in keeping the area active and open for residents and visitors. This includes a Farmers Market from May to October, Halloween trick-or-treating, and Holiday festivities. Other traditional community events include the Art in the Park Celebration on July 4th, the "Moore War" annual football game between Moore High School and Westmoore High School at the end of August, and Red Ribbon Parade and Jam on the last Saturday of October.
For people interested in living in Moore or current residents who have children, the Moore Public school system offers a highly ranked education.
