Travel Tips for Norman

Epicenter of the New World

by mrclay2000

Edwards Park in the downtown area was laid out in 1913 next to the train tracks. Although not particularly scenic, being now little more than an extended lawn alongside the railroad and the depot, the park roughly marks the epicenter of Norman's birth and evolution. From the park, some of Norman's historical buildings lie within a few yards. The statue depicted here is a very recent monument to the pioneers and educators in the area. Although Norman is growing in leaps and bounds, its historical center is fairly well preserved. Many of the 1890s facades are unchanged from their original design, while many others, defaced somewhat since their glory days, still preserve some traces of their original purpose.

Sooners on the highway!

Here's a photo of Sooner fans heading south on Interstate 35 to the 2007 Big 12 Championship football game against Missouri. The game was played in San Antonio, and Oklahoma was the victor. On that day there were hundreds of Sooner fans headed south.

Native American Heritage

by mrclay2000

Since it was built on territory once reserved for the Native Americans, one would expect to see some commemoration for the Five Civilized Tribes. For years however there was little trace of Indian culture throughout campus, but lately, perhaps following the lead at the state capitol, the University regents have commissioned several works depicting Indian men and women, including a small copy of "the Guardian," the colossal sculpture of an Indian brave that now adorns the state capitol building. Look for such works throughout the campus.
