History of the Arbuckle Mountains (The Heart of Chickasaw Country)

Before the Rockies and Sierras were formed the Arbuckle Mountains were in existence. Scientists say they were probably over 20,000 feet tall at one time!Arbuckle Oklahoma bison

 

Over 200 million years old, they are the some of the oldest mountains in America. The Arbuckle Mountains have been severely denuded as a result of millions of years of erosion. The mountains now appear as a moderately dissected, low plateau.

 

This region was once covered by a vast ocean and the remnants are still found on the beaches and in the rock with fossils and sea shells. The calcium-rich bodies of dead sea organisms also formed thick limestone layers; in some areas, limestone and shale deposits reach thickness of up to two miles DinosaursHoney Creek - Oklahoma once inhabited this region and skeletal remains have been found and are displayed at local museums like the Goddard Youth Museum here in Murray County.

 

During the Permian Era, the region's crust was forced upward, presumably by the Arbuckle Orogeny (uplift event). The force of this upheaval was so great that many of the sandstone, shale and limestone layers were broken and folded, creating large anticlines. Along with the folding process.

The Arbuckle Mountains have always been a source of wonder for geology students and rock enthusiasts. The outcroppings of rocks you will see if you drive Interstate 35 and Highway 77, look like rows of tombstones!
