Wewoka is a town in the Frontier Country region of Oklahoma, founded by freedman John House and the Black Seminoles in 1849, that became the capital of the Seminole Nation eventually. It went thru an oil boom phase to become the third largest city in Oklahoma for a time in the 1930s, but now it tries hard to retain its population and unique designation on the map and in the history books.
