All right, guys. Time once again to gather around the computer campfire, and please bring some extra marshmallows -- I'm fresh out.
I'd like to throw this around a bit. Do you have a favorite Oklahoma landmark? It may be where you live, or it may be where you travel in Oklahoma. I know there are many famous landmarks in the Sooner State, but you know of some that are not so famous, too.

I'd love to see what you folks in Oklahoma come up with. I did a similar thing on the Texas threads regarding Texas landmarks a month ago and it was a huge hit. This here will be fun. So let's hear from you now ---- let 'er rip!

I think the Price Tower in Bartlesville is a landmark. The Skirvin Hotel in OkC (if still standing) would certainly have been a landmark. I think Tulsa has many historic buildings that are landmarks, such as the Philtower and other notable buildings. The Heavener Runestone I would also put on that list as well as Robber's Den? My mind is basically swiss cheese lately, I'll come up with some more later. Good topic case!

What I would love to see is the Mayo hotel in Tulsa do the same. That hotel has a lot of history. The Mayo ~ Opulence Reborn

The Coleman Theatre Beautiful in Miami. In the 1950's when I was paying a dime to get in, I had no idea it would become a landmark building.
