Long Description:
Located south of downtown Oklahoma City, Capitol Hill was originally expected to become the capital of Oklahoma. Later, it was annexed to OKC. During the 1920s, with the aid of the oil and gas boom, this area grew rapidly. Much of its commercial district was constructed during the 1920s. Large department stores, theaters and all kinds of shopping developed this area into a prominent district, which continued until the 1970s.

At this point, the area began to fall into neglect and slowly lost its appeal and commercial success. After a while, however, interest perked and a current MainStreet Project is striving to renew these properties and bring this area back to life.

El Nacional de Oklahoma is a Spanish language newspaper which has been in business since 1988. It is distributed free of charge to over 400 rack locations throughout Central Oklahoma and the Tulsa area. This is a twice-monthly paper which comes out on Thursday with 45,000 copies distributed each month. It is the No. 1 Spanish language paper in Oklahoma. It prints local and world news, sports and entertainment. It is published by Alfay Omega Enterprises. The headquarters is located in a one-story brick building on the southwest corner of S. Harvey and S.W. 25th Street.
