Protecting Personal Injury Victims in Moore, OK
As the seventh largest city in the state of Oklahoma, Moore has a population of 56,315 people and a total area of 21.9 sq. miles. This city is part of Cleveland County and is also included in the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. The city of Moore was founded back in 1889 by the early settlers and it was originally referred to as "Verbeck," which originated from the railroad company. The city got its current name from a railroad company employee name Al Moore, who was said to be a conductor or a brakeman. He was living in one of the box cars and he would never receive his mail, so he finally painted his name on a sign and nailed it to the boxcar. From that time on, the appointed postmaster continued to call the area Moore and the name was later officially legalized in 1893.
The town remained quiet and stagnant for about 70 years until a frantic expansion occurred, attracting nationwide attention. It wasn't until 1962 that Moore became a city, and throughout the sixties the city expanded and the population soared. The next memorable date in the city's history was the tornado of 1999. On May 3, Moore was hit with the devastating tornado ever recorded, destroying over 1,000 dwelling units. When all was said and done, there were around 3,000-4,000 people without shelter. Today, the city has almost come to full recovery and has rebuilt a good portion of the destroyed property. One factor that makes this city so great is its prime location. Moore is very close to Oklahoma City, making it a convenient and desirable place to live.
The once sleepy little town is now known for its exquisite restaurants, shopping areas and its entertainment factor. Being only 20 minutes for the state capital, the Tinker Air Force Base, the University of Oklahoma and the Will Rogers World Airport, Moore is in an expedient location. Many notable and successful people have either resided or originated from Moore, OK including Danny Cooksey, Tom Cole, Michael Hinckley, Jesse Jane, Randy Wayne, Morgan Woolard and Randall L. Stephenson. The city is also home to three different high schools, five junior high school and 22 elementary schools- there is no a shortage of good educational opportunities.
