    La Quinta (yes, that's the name!)

    This former mansion of the president of the Indian Territory Illuminating Oil Company is now an administration building on the campus of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. Built in 1929, the mansion-now-admin-building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Personnel and Information Transit

    Hulah Depot, Bartlesville

    In the later days of 19th century rail travel, depots served as information exchanges as well as platforms for rail travelers. Telegraph offices often commandeered part of the depot and sometimes postal services were conducted here. The present photograph from Johnstone Park is removed from the Hulah Lake area outside of Bartlesville.

    Former Hotel Maire

    old schoolroom exhibit, BAHM

    The former hotel is now the Bartlesville Area History Museum, but the building shares its space with some civic offices. The museum is not especially exciting as a historical tour, and thankfully admission is by generous donations. Compulsory admission would seem a crime for a breeze-through tour of such seemingly insignificant exhibits.

    Price Tower

    Frank Lloyd Wright's Price Tower

    Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Price Tower purports to be the tallest skyscraper ever built from designs by Frank Lloyd Wright. Today the tower supports both an arts center and still operates as a hotel (the Inn at Price Tower), but for all its hoopla, the structure is most unbecoming, almost homely, and denounced by local firemen as "a fire trap."
