There are numerous abandoned places in Oklahoma, though the following spot is definitely among the creepiest. Tulsa Speedway was located on the Tulsa Fairgrounds from the 1930s until it moved north on Highway 75 in 1985, when the Fair Meadows horse track was constructed nearby. Once the track moved, they started the first sprint car program in 1988. The Tulsa Speedway was a popular and successful location through the 1990s. It changed ownership many times and finally shut its doors in 2005. One YouTuber took footage of this abandoned speedway in Oklahoma, which offers a fascinating perspective.

What are some other abandoned places in Oklahoma?

When conjuring up imaged of abandoned places in Oklahoma, some of the Sooner State's ghost towns might come to mind. These are some of the most notoriously creepy places in Oklahoma, and their stories are fascinating:

  • Ingalls, Oklahoma. Settled in 1889, the town of Ingalls sprung up after the land rush and became the bustling home to about 150 residents -- and then, over the years, people left. This town was the site of a shootout between the Doolin and Dalton gangs, and there is a stone memorial in the town in remembrance of the marshals who were killed. All that’s now left of this eerie place is a few buildings that represent its outlaw history. This Oklahoma ghost town is hauntingly quiet, and definitely creepy.
  • Lenora, Oklahoma. Located in Dewey County, this town was once known as the "Pearl of the Prairies." The town got its first post office in 1896 and was a very prosperous trade and cultural center.
