Information About Independent Living Facility in Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City Independent LivingOklahoma City independent living takes place in the heart of the State of Oklahoma. It is a three-hour drive north of Dallas, Texas via Interstate 35 and two and a half hours south of Wichita, Kansas. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population density of 956 per square mile. This is blissfully low compared to the likes of Wichita, with 2,305, or Dallas, at 3,518. The median age in Oklahoma City is 34 years. Perhaps surprisingly for a land-locked region, the ambient climate is described as humid subtropical. Summer is consistently hot and humid, 84 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter's northerly winds can bring the temperature down as low as -17 degrees Fahrenheit. The city was founded during the 1889 Land Run and grew to a population of 10,000 within a matter of hours. Actor Lon Chaney, Jr., who played the Wolf Man, Frankenstein's Monster, the Mummy and Count Alucard, was born in Oklahoma City.
