City of Checotah

Economic Development

Born as railhead for the M.K. & T. Railroad in 1872, transportation has always played a big role in the economy of Checotah and the surrounding area.

Today, Checotah is at the intersection of Interstate 40 and U.S. Highway 69, two of the busiest highways in Oklahoma. And the Union Pacific Railroad now rolls down the track of the old M. K. &T.

Checotah is minutes away from Oklahoma’s largest man made lake, Lake Eufaula that provides water for homes and business as well recreational opportunities.
