If you are in the area of Tulsa, Oklahoma you can find this “village” off of what is now Southwest Blvd in the southwestern part of town.
While there were some very picturesque items here, there was little signage that would describe what you are looking at and why it is here.
There are 2 major features that stand out – the “Meteor” train and the oil derrick tower.
The Red Fork Centennial Oil Derrick and the village seem to be part of a master plan by Tulsa to celebrate the famous Route 66 that runs through the city.
The “Meteor” train is a gorgeous piece of history. Unfortunately we could not find any signage about the train.
This feature is an outline of Oklahoma and signifies that this is a Blue Star Memorial By-Way.
One of the interesting items is this sign painted on the building next door. It doesn’t seem to be an official part of the village but is a welcome addition.
And one of the strangest features was this mailbox. So if you feel like writing them a letter, this is where it will go. From here is anyone’s guess.
This is worth a stop if you are a follower of the old Route 66. Very scenic but not very informative.
There doesn’t seem to be any official information website for this place. You can find numerous travel sites that will say something about it if you search.
