We are glad that you have taken time to visit our web site.Harrah is one of those unique little towns you always dream about. We like to say that Harrah is the best kept secret in Eastern Oklahoma County. If you enjoy rural living in an urban setting, this is your kind of place. Located at the extreme edge of Oklahoma County we enjoy both. Harrah is the kind of place where you see the stars at night and know your neighbors. Yet you are 30 minutes from all the hustle and bustle of the “Big Town”.Founded by Frank Harrah around the turn of the century, Harrah has small town charm, yet is in close proximity to all the amenities of a large city, without the traffic. Within a 30 mile radius of our community are located several of Oklahoma’s finest colleges. We are also served by a great vo-tech system. Being located between I 40 and the Turner Turnpike gives us the ability to reach Tulsa, Dallas TX, Ft Smith AR with ease.
Enjoying our own school system, police department, and fire department gives us great flexibility. The City of Harrah is a council/manager form of local government, which welcomes citizen participation. We enjoy a tremendous citizen involvement in most all activities. Each year we host a day long event celebrating our cities founding that includes a car show, parade, fireworks and of course the crowning of our princess, that is the envy of our neighboring towns. Celebrated the Saturday after Labor Day, it has become an annual destination for many people. We recently received an innovations award from the Oklahoma Municipal League for our state-of-the-art city park which welcomes visitors to multiple free concerts and events all summer long.
With the excellent location of our town we are a growing community. Several new residential areas have been established in recent years. Our community also has a great industrial park for businesses to locate. Having a state highway running through town gives us the traffic count to benefit our retail businesses. We will grow and would like for you to be a part of our growth. Having an active Chamber of Commerce enhances your ability to let you grow your business. You will find that our relaxed style of living makes Harrah a great place to raise your family.
Come join us some time. Stop at one of our neighborhood restaurants and have a cup of tea or coffee and we are sure you will enjoy the experience.
