Welcome to Blackwell, Oklahoma where we refer to it as, "America's Hometown."
Blackwell is conveniently located in the heart of the USA and is uniquely located at the top of Oklahoma, just miles from the Kansas border on the I-35 corridor that is ideal for distribution! The City of Blackwell has a family friendly, small town atmosphere while offering a great location for commutable distances to the larger cities all located within one to two-hour commute in either direction.
We are a rural community with a population just over 6,000 (2020) who is aggressively seeking new industry to our region. The local attitude is highly enthusiastic and ready for the opportunities offered by your project. In addition to our diverse population, we have a viable labor pool of over 86 thousand within a 45-minute commute pattern.
The Blackwell Industrial Authority (BIA) and the Blackwell Economic Development Authority (BEDA) are Trusts under the City of Blackwell. Each authority operates autonomously under the direction of a board of trustees. We are passionate about our State and our Local Community.
