The first settler of the area was Chief Sapulpa, a lower Creek Indian of the Kasihta Tribe of Osocheetown, Alabama. He came around 1850 and began a trading post near where downtown Sapulpa is now located. The Atlantic and Pacific railroad came here in 1886 and called it's station "Sapulpa Station" in honor of the chief who was very friendly to the workers and people. A post office was opened in 1889 and named Sapulpa. In 1898, the town was incorporated. In 1905, just six miles southeast of Sapulpa, oil was discovered in Glenpool. A period of great growth occurred at this time. Also around the same time, two brick factories and four glass plants were begun. By the mid-1920's, Sapulpa has grown to around 20,000 inhabitants. Many of the current downtown buildings were erected during this time period.
