Route 66, Oklahoma City - The Mother Road

Today the stockyards remains the world's largest stocker and feeder cattle market.  Main Street is lined with a number of shops filled with Western wear to dress you in attire from head to toe and unique stores with handmade products and housewares. If you like country music, Rodeo Opry along Exchange Avenue offers live music for your entertainment.  The mission of Main Street is to preserve Western culture and the feel of the old west in a modern setting.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum which houses the largest collection of Cowboy memorabilia in the country have over 28,000 Western and American Indian art works and artifacts including the world’s most extensive collection of rodeo photographs.

Pop’s Route 66 – Giant Pop Bottle, The 66-ft LED pop bottle is hard to miss. Pop’s is where modern architecture meets roadside attraction. The huge futuristic canopy stretches 100 feet (unsupported!), to shelter car and their occupants from sun, rain and snow.

Pop’s signature is soda pop – with a selection of more than 400 ice-cold sodas and beverages. There is a full-service grill and self-serve gas station, so you might as well stop. Get there at dusk if you can, for a great photo op.  The LED pop bottle is 11 feet taller than Texas State Fair's Big Tex.


Originally built by a local farmer in 1898 and restored in 1992, the red round barn in Arcadia at one time was one of the most photographed landmarks on Route 66. It is now a resource for Route 66 information and shop along the route.

On the morning of April 19, 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City was destroyed in a domestic terrorist attack when a bomb exploded, killing 168 people. The Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum was created to remember those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever.

                         The $10 million, 182-room hotel will be the district’s first full-service hotel and will include a bar, valet parking and other amenities, according to
                         Tulsa hotelier Andy Patel.  The hotel will be situated on the southeast corner of Sheridan & Oklahoma Avenues, it will be the gateway to Oklahoma
                         City's Bricktown Entertainment District.  A large parking structure has been proposed to accommodate the less than adequate parking amenities
                         that plague the entertainment's districts growth potential.

                         Plans call for a scheduled completion and opening date before March, 2021.

                         Patel told the Oklahoman,  “We could have opened two to three months ago, but we need to have access and there is so much construction going
                         on. It’s a little bit painful right now. But there is huge potential ahead.”

Construction is underway on the new dam with a temporary coffer dam now in place on the west side of the river.  A portion of the old dam has been demolished already.  With the bridge construction starting so it can be built in conjunction with the dam and the Children’s Museum well underway I hope we can see new renderings of Phase 2 soon.  Specifically the park areas around the museum and along Crow Creek.

We are still waiting on the Oklahoma City Archdiocese to name this Basilica.   You must realize that much of what has been posted is in the placeholder variety with the exception of the structural renderings of this Basilica.

There are still a lot of artifacts to be purchased; they are checking with older Roman Catholic Churches that may have usable artifacts to fit the theme--which we don't know because the Basilica has yet to be named.

Will it be Our Lady... or Our Father... or something similar to 'Holy Family Cathedral' in Tulsa--one of my Sunday favorites to visit when I'm in Tulsa.  We are anxiously awaiting more development from the Archdioceses.


Holy Family Cathedral, Tulsa

Yeah, I think they need more churches!   OKC is falling way behind Tulsa on that one...



Hahahahaha...

I don't know Tulsa's ratio; but OKC nearly has a church on every block.  Now, is that a good thing or should you build bigger and less smaller churches...

Our Roman Catholic Church population in OKC is exploding.
