Located in the heart of the scenic Arbuckle Mountains, Sulphur
is a hidden paradise of beauty, peaceful hometown ethics and family values.
American Indians discovered the clear natural springs several millenniums past. White settlers discovered the area in the late 1800s. The city of Sulphur
Springs developed around the springs and quickly became an attraction due to the \"medicinal qualities\" of the waters. Hundreds of testimonials brought trainloads of people into the area. The Chickasaw Nation feared that the springs would be fouled and transferred the land to the United States government to be protected in 1902. the first national park in Oklahoma had begun.
Word quickly spread of the benefits of the mineral waters and the city of Sulphur
experienced quite a boom in tourism. Thousands came by train and wagon claiming remarkable recoveries and praising the healing waters. Sulphur
drew many people to the black mud of spring-fed Rock Creek, where they would pack on the mud and make claims to its miraculous healing powers. These same running streams, bubbling springs and gushing wells welcome visitors today.
