Backstory

Collinsville originated as part of Roger County. Once a small post office was established in the area in 1897, the location became known as Collins Post Office, named for the establisher, DR. A. H. Collins. The town grew into the name of Collinsville and voted to join Tulsa county in 1918. The town is well known for Tulsa County’s oldest newspaper (no longer in print), Collinsville News. It was also a thriving mining town due to the discovery of an abundance of sulfur-free coal, oil and gas, and zinc. Once the mining dissipated, the town became heavily reliant on agriculture.
