Broken Arrow is a city located in the northeastern part of the U.S. state of Oklahoma, primarily in Tulsa County but also with a small section of the city in western Wagoner County. It is the largest suburb of Tulsa. The population was 74,859 at the 2000 census. The 2009 U.S. Census estimates placed the city's population at 94,996.[3] The estimated 2010 population is 97,000. [4]

Lots for the town site were sold in 1902 by the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railway Company and it was named Broken Arrow by William. S. Fears, secretary of the company.[5] The city was named for a Creek community settled by Creek Indians who came to Oklahoma from Alabama along the Trail of Tears.

Though Broken Arrow was originally an agricultural community, its current economy is diverse. The city has the third largest concentration of industries in the state.[6]
