The Beginnings

OUR STORY

First National Center is widely considered one of Oklahoma City top architectural treasures. But more than a building, it tells the story of the city’s tremendous growth and its arduous challenges. Oil drilling, the banking industry and even the history of Oklahoma are all woven into the fabric of The National, captured in stone, metal and murals.

The Murals

HISTORY COMES TO LIFE

Four large murals look across the Great Hall from each of its corners.

Painted by Edgar Spier Cameron in 1931, each scene depicts significant events from Oklahoma’s history. So important are these historic murals that the subject matter of each is carried into the guest experience.

SUNSET TRAIL

Sunset Trail, today known as “The Trail of Tears” was a series of forced removals of the Choctaw, Seminole Creek, Chickasaw and Cherokee tribal members from their native lands in Southeastern United States between 1830 and 1850. Their destination was to an area West of the Mississippi River that became known as Indian Territory which is modern day Oklahoma. The trail West into Oklahoma was a total distance of nearly 1,000 miles. Most walked that distance and one in four did not survive.

The hotel pays homage to the suffering and sacrifice by so many Native Americans by recognizing the history and reflecting cultural symbols in our design.

LOUISIANA TRANSFER

In the 1700s the French claimed the Louisiana territory which included Louisiana, Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, and portions of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. In 1803 the United States under Thomas Jefferson purchased the land for $15 million dollars U.S. The Louisiana Purchase was by far the largest territorial gain in U.S. history and paved the way for Oklahoma’s statehood.

THE RUN

Two murals capture the imagery of “The Run.” At high noon on April 22, 1889, an estimated 50,000 people lined up for their piece of the available two million acres of Unassigned Land. Known as the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889 included all or part of the present-day Oklahoma. The Unassigned Lands were the result of the forced removal of Native Americas and the Indian Appropriations Act of 1889. Provided a settler lived on the land and improved it, the settler could then receive the title to the land.

A number of people who participated in the run entered the unoccupied land early and hid there until the legal time of entry to lay quick claim to some of the most choice homesteads. These people came to be identified as “Sooners”.
