About Us

Unique­la­homa is an online mag­a­zine show­cas­ing what is unique, beau­ti­ful, and pos­i­tive in Okla­homa. Start­ed by vet­er­an jour­nal­ist C.L. Har­mon and IT pro­fes­sion­al Spencer Heckathorn in 2017, the idea is to focus on the peo­ple, places and events that make Okla­homa such an incred­i­ble place to live and visit.

High­light­ing peo­ple from all walks of life and places that only can be expe­ri­enced in Okla­homa, we focus on the unique. And not just in sub­ject mat­ter, but in how we approach every sto­ry. To get to the heart of each sto­ry, we inter­act with whom we are writ­ing about engulf­ing our­selves in their his­to­ry, pas­sions, and sur­round­ings. We want you to be so involved in our sto­ries, you can almost hear the words of vet­er­an actor Lar­ry Sell­ers retell sto­ries of his child­hood in Pawhus­ka and his pas­sion for Native Amer­i­can cul­ture. We want you to visu­al­ize the nos­tal­gia of decades of music hang­ing from the walls of famous con­cert pro­mot­er Lar­ry Shaeffer’s office, feel the fear from walk­ing in a haunt­ed ceme­tery and expe­ri­ence the excite­ment about the rebuild­ing of leg­endary musi­cian Leon Russell’s famous Church Stu­dio in Tul­sa. We at Unique­la­homa look beyond the sur­face and delve deep­er into our sub­ject mat­ter to bring our read­ers sto­ries that stim­u­late emo­tions as well as enrich their knowledge.

We are a con­tin­u­al­ly grow­ing team of writ­ers who strive to bring you enter­tain­ing sto­ries and infor­ma­tion about the seem­ing­ly end­less, inter­est­ing, and unique top­ics with­in the bor­ders of the Soon­er state. Each per­son here is pas­sion­ate about Okla­homa and Unique­la­homa. From those work­ing behind the scenes to post con­tent to the writ­ers and pho­tog­ra­phers, we are ded­i­cat­ed to ensur­ing read­ers will expe­ri­ence sto­ries that are fun, inter­est­ing, and engag­ing to read. This is cer­tain­ly des­tined to become a favorite site you will vis­it time and again.

Unique Quote

When you would rather sacrifice all for what you believe in than live with nothing under the beliefs of another, love enough to be completely vulnerable and to trust again after your soul has been shattered by another, you have been awakened to the cost of every freedom that exists. - C.L. Harmon
