The history of our city began in 1891, and on May 29, 2002 our city was 100 years old. Many changes have been made, but the atmosphere of a pleasant community still remains.
Prague has excellent Hospital and clinic care. See, Health Care under Community for information about our local hospital and what type of care it provides.
Prague can also boast of having one of the cleanest and neatest cities in our part of the state. Prague’s current population is approximately 2,200. It is a bedroom community in that a great deal of the people who live in Prague commute to work in other towns. Many people move to Prague for the excellent schools.
The citizens of Prague have developed facilities for golf, tennis, swimming, baseball and rodeo. Good airport facilities are available with office, hanger, lights, beacon, and an asphalt runway of 3,000 feet. Prague has one of the most beautiful parks in the state. In 1984 a 300-acre city owned lake was completed which provides recreation including fishing with a boat ramp, covered fishing dock and equestrian trails. There are also picnic and restroom facilities with playground equipment for the children.
The foresight of the founding fathers continues as a tradition for modern leaders, with the determination to grow and make the most of the city’s resources. The community strives to provide quality of life for citizens and visitors of all age levels.
Worship services are an important part of those who live in Prague and there are twenty churches in town and the surrounding area, all showing improvement in size and appearance. Many people enjoy our small town atmosphere and move here from other cities to raise their families.
There are over 20 civic organizations in Prague, including Kiwanis, Lions Club, and Boy Scouts. Most people moving to Prague can find the organization in which they were active prior to their coming.
The Prague School District has over 1,000 students and many honors have been added by the hard efficient work of the students. Prague takes pride in the achievements of the students and feels the young people to be one of their greatest assets.
Agriculture and ranching continues to rank high as major industry in the area and beautiful farms and ranches can be seen throughout the countryside. Major crops are alfalfa, wheat and pecans. Registered swine and cattle are also in abundance. Many breeders in this area have won trophies from their stock. This helps and encourages the FFA toward greater goals.
Prague is centrally located between Oklahoma’s two largest cities, 50 miles east of Oklahoma City and 65 miles southwest of Tulsa. We are 7 miles north of I-40 and 19 miles south of Turner Turnpike. Highways 62 and 99 run through Prague.
