Durant

Durant, Oklahoma is a close-knit community, located at the western edge of the Choctaw Nation, where U.S. 69 and U.S. 70 converge in Bryan County. With a population of 15,856, Durant was ranked the fastest-growing rural city in Oklahoma in 2004. This is no surprise when one considers the city’s strong economy and prime location just minutes from Lake Texoma, one of the largest reservoirs in the country.

Durant is home to Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Choctaw Casino Resort, the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma (ranked one of the top 100 hospitals in the country), the headquarters of First United Bank, a major Big Lots distribution center and the world’s largest peanut, located in front of city hall.

Some call it “74701.” Some call it the “City of Magnolias.” Others call it the “Queen of the Three Valleys,” due to its location in the valleys of the Red, Blue and Washita rivers. But most people simply call it “home.” Rocking O Construction services the entire city of Durant and Bryan County.
