Pittsburg County is a county located in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It was formed from part of the Choctaw Nation in Indian Territory in 1907. As of the 2010 census, the population was 45,837. Its county seat is McAlester. County leaders believed that its coal production compared favorably with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the time of statehood. This industry declined sharply by the middle of the 20th Century, and agriculture (including raising livestock) became more important.
