Laverne is a small, rural community located in NW Oklahoma. It was founded in 1889 with a one room sod post office. Pioneer settlers came to this area for the rich farm and ranch land and dreams of new opportunity. It was soon discovered the Laverne area had abundant oil and natural gas reserves just waiting to be tapped. In the 1950's Laverne was even given the title "Oil Capital of Northwest Oklahoma." Agriculture continues to play a huge role in our livelihood as does oil and gas production. Even though our land is rich in resources, we recognize our greatest assets are our people. We are hard workers, resilient and committed to seeing our town thrive. We are always looking for new industry and ideas to help our economy grow.
The Laverne Area Chamber of Commerce was formed in 1957 and has remained a vital agent for progress in our community for decades. Our organization prides itself on our large membership, dedicated leaders and community involvement. We want our business community to flourish and we strive to support entrepreneurship among our residents. We host several town-wide events each year to invest in our citizens and community.
Although we are a small community, we offer a wide variety of attractions, amenities and opportunities. From an excellent public school system to comprehensive healthcare, Laverne has much to offer. Whether you are looking for the refuge of a slower pace of life or you are already used to small town living, we welcome you to become part of our community.
