I may be moving there for a job. I'm just curious how the town is doing, how the big oil company in town is doing, etc. No offense to any one that lives there but I don't want to jump onto a sinking ship if the area isn't doing well. I saw they shut down a call center recently potentially laying off 300 people.

Bartlesville is certainly one of the best small towns in Oklahoma and hasn't been doing bad. It's just on the stagnant side.

I am considering Bartlesville and wondering if you could elaborate on why you think it's a good town? Thank you and have a good day.

It's mainly good for being unusual for an Oklahoma town, especially when going downtown. There is the Price Tower, the only skyscraper plan of Frank Lloyd Wright that was built. Other skyscrapers are there of Phillips Petroleum. The community center built by oil money is very nice for a town the size of Bartlesville. There is a nice enclosed mall. It's also good for being a little under a hour's drive to Tulsa. So with all that plus not being real small, it offers more than the average Oklahoma town.

When my Grandfather died in Nowata Oklahoma I moved from Tulsa Oklahoma to Nowata to live with my Grandmother , because she refused to live in the cities of Oklahoma City Oklahoma ,Tulsa or Tucson Arizona where the vast majority of our relatives lived.

Bartlesville is less than 20 miles away from the small town of Nowata and less than 50 miles away from Tulsa OK.

Nowata Oklahoma being a Bonafide small Oklahoma town makes Bartlesville look like a small or even medium size city with all of it's amenities.

Since I'm on my smartphone and can't hyperlink some of the amenities " keep an eye peeled" for me later on today as I list the amenities for both Bartlesville and Tulsa Oklahoma.
