This Boy Scouts of America building houses the Laura Fields Service Center & Scout Shop. It was probably built in the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

National Guard Armory and Maintenance Garages

The round, concrete National Guard Armory with the dome and the white Maintenance Garages with wave-like roofs were designed by Paul Harris and built in 1955. [map]

Daily Grind Sandwich Express
Bartlesville, OK
Play Tower
Bartlesville, OK
The Daily Grind Sandwich Express building appears to be from the 1960s. My guess would be that this was originally a gas station office. This photo is from 2011. By 2016, the building was housing Maria's Tacos. By 2019, the building was housing El Corral. [map]

The Play Tower was designed by Bruce Goff and built in 1964. It is located in Sooner Park and was built for children to play on. It has been closed to the public since the 1990s when it was deemed unsafe. The five-story tall structure is sometimes referred to as the Space Rocket. These photos are from 2011. The Play Tower was restored in 2014. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Glancy Motor Hotel
Clinton, OK
The Glancy Motor Hotel was built in 1939. This sign and building appear are from 1950. In 2019, the motel was condemned. It will probably be demolished soon. It's not known if the sign will be staying. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Bartlesville Community Center
Bartlesville, OK
The Bartlesville Community Center was designed by William Wesley Peters and built from 1979-1982. A little late to be mid-century but I'll include it anyway. The building functions primarily as a performing arts center. [map]
