Lexington, OK
Dairy Boy was an Oklahoma chain which was established in 1957. The first location was in Oklahoma City. Franchising began almost immediately. By 1962, there were 165 locations. Most of them were built in small towns to avoid competition with Dairy Queen. The original buildings were produced by Valentine. I believe there are only two locations still open: in Okemah, OK and Minco, OK. For more, see this website.

The sign in Jet was all that remained of that location. This photo is from 2011. I'm pretty sure that this sign is gone now.

I believe this location in Lexington was the only one left with a sign like this. These photos are from 2011. This location closed in 2013. The building was demolished and the sign gone by 2016.

There were locations in Bartlesville, OK, Weatherford, OK, and El Reno, OK which are gone now.
